Professional Wine Reviews for Jax Vineyards Taureau Y3 2016

Rated 89 by Jeb Dunnuck
The 2016 Red Blend Y3 Taureau checks in as the value play from the estate and is based on 50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 20% Syrah. Jammy black cherries, cedarwood, spice, and leafy herb notes all emerge from this medium-bodied, forward, sexy, undeniably delicious effort that has loads to love. Drink this fruit-forward beauty over the coming 2-3 years.
Meet our Y3 Taureau, an indulgent blend sourced from premium vineyards. Starting with Merlot, sourced from Dry Creek Valley, the Taureau offers a polished blend with Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Full bodied. Feisty. Just like the legendary bull after whom it was named. And not only does Taureau pair well with most dishes, but it offers a “special occasion taste” at an “everyday wine price.” For a gorgeous blend with a soft entry and deep complexity, grab a bull by the bottle.

Winery Jax Vineyards

Region: California

California as a wine producing region has grown in size and importance considerably over the past couple of centuries, and today is the proud producer of more than ninety percent of the United States' wines. Indeed, if California was a country, it would be the fourth largest producer of wine in the world, with a vast range of vineyards covering almost half a million acres. The secret to California's success as a wine region has a lot to do with the high quality of its soils, and the fact that it has an extensive Pacific coastline which perfectly tempers the blazing sunshine it experiences all year round. The winds coming off the ocean cool the vines, and the natural valleys and mountainsides which make up most of the state's wine regions make for ideal areas in which to cultivate a variety of high quality grapes.

Country: United States

Whilst there are several strains of native grape varietals in the United States, it was the introduction of the European species which prompted the country to begin producing wines on a large scale. Over the past few centuries, experimentation and cross-breeding has produced great successes in regards to the quality and suitability of the fruit grown in states such as California, Oregon, Washington and New York, and the past few decades have seen New World wines from the United States reach much higher standards. Arguably the finest United States wines have always come out of California, where the climate and terrroir is most suitable for fine wine production. The masterful blending of classic grape varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, amongst others including Syrah and Chardonnay, have had world beating results in recent years, prompting many to suggest that there has never been a better time for buying and drinking United States wines.

Appellation: Napa Valley

California has long been recognized as a wonderfully rich and fertile location for viticulture, and hundreds of years now, vintners in the United States of America have used the valleys and mountain sides of California for gradually building their own wine culture, based on techniques and practices brought over from the old countries. When it comes to Californian wines of real quality and distinction, however, there is nowhere quite like the Napa Valley, which is now widely considered to be one of the world's premier wine regions, and very much the standard bearer for modern, American wines. With Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Zinfandel varietal grapes all growing well in Napa Valley, the region produces an impressive range of wines, which have had an enormous impact on the Old and New Worlds, and have changed viticulture forever.
