PRODUCT OVERVIEW/REVIEW:
Siblings Trent and Kimberly Jackson collaborated with their vintner father to found Jax Vineyards with a focus on crafting artisanal, single vineyard wines that reflect their origins. Kirk Venge was a natural choice for winemaker for his ability to create balanced wines reflecting varietal character and a sense of place. Passionate about the Jackson’s vineyard site, which has been integral to their clone and root stalk selections, and now 15 years in, Kirk has reinforced their instinct that focus should always be on terroir in order to understand the nuances that bring forth great wine.

To differentiate from their small lot single vineyard Jax line, they launched their lineup of “Y3” wines that are sourced from multiple AVAs spanning Napa and Sonoma. Staying true to their belief that great wines are made in the vineyards, the “Y3” wines each display the distinct characteristics of their origins. The lineup is named for the cattle ranch that was owned by the Jackson’s grandparents and represents three generations of working the land.  

Today’s wine, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, And Syrah is named for the Jackson family’s prized bull, legendary for his feisty, high-kicking and vibrant personality. When perfecting this wine at their blending session, the JAX team concurred that the complex personality of their infamous bull reflected the complex structure and elements of this indulgent red blend... and what a perfect tribute to their family ranching legend.*

The 2017 Y3 Taureau is full-bodied yet elegant, with enticing aromas and flavors of brambly black raspberries, black cherries and cassis. Accents of mocha, black pepper, and baking spice add depth and dimension to the palate; restrained use of oak and balancing acidity allow the lush fruit characters to take center stage. 

89 points, Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
“This blends 50% Merlot with 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Syrah, combining them into a forceful, full-bodied and approachable wine of viscous richness and dried plum fruit.” (5/1/20)
