Jax Family Vineyards Y3 Taureau
Jax Y3 Taureau is a red blend, but Merlot predominates at 50%; Cab Sauv makes up another 25%, Syrah 20% and Zinfandel 5%. Ruby purple in color, with loads of black cherry and briary black currant fruit, the wine is meaty and refreshing, with hints of mocha and earth. A beautifully rich, concentrated, irresistible style of wine to drink casually or with serious cuisine.
This predominately German / Austrian grape variety comes from Alto-Adige / Südtirol in Italy, an area that was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire until annexed by Italy in 1919 following the aftermath of WWI. It’s a mountainous area bordered by both modern Austria and Switzerland. As you might expect this white wine is a perfect accompaniment to rich Northern Italian dishes with butter, cream and cheese. It’s got a great acidity that shows peach, pineapple, orange zest and a hint of grapefruit.
Pairings? For the red: mushrooms (stuffed or flatbread), meatballs or tomato sauce (Margherita Flatbread). For the white: Any of our flatbreads or shrimp dishes. Or… the new cheeses for either one.
