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.
Reflecting the dominating character of Taureau, this wine boasts incredible purple fruit colors, flavors of blackberry, black cherry and red on the palate, and all supported by polished tannins. Balanced and delicious. Jax Vineyards
