Cooper & Thief Bourbon Barrel Aged Red Wine
The 2016 vintage came in early with exceptional quality fruit throughout the state. Welcome winter rains helped alleviate the drought. The entire ripening season enjoyed cooler-than-average daytime highs and cold nights—perfect for inky, complex wines.
Cooper & Thief is a dark and jammy red wine blend loaded with bourbon-inspired flavors and aromas. Crafted by Cellarmaster, Jeff Kasavan, the wine is aged for three months in bourbon barrels, which gives way to soft, velvety tannins with a subtle heat. The combined result is a rich flavor, with a long, lingering finish.
Blend: 31% Syrah, 28% Merlot, 20% Zinfandel, 14% Petite Sirah, 3% Malbec, and 4% Other Red Blenders.
