The name Taureau, was the name of 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 character of their infamous bull reflected the structure and elements of this indulgent red blend... and what a perfect tribute to their family ranching legend.
Their goal with this wine was to produce an approachable, everyday drinking wine that pairs with a range of foods. Balancing the Merlot beautifully, the earthy Cabernet Franc lends a savory characteristic with hints of anise while the Cabernet Sauvignon provides dark fruit and rich color.
