Cooper&Thief Red Blend
Cellarmaster select. Our blend is quietly rested in bourbon barrels to produce a more complex, smooth and rounded wine. Aged 3 months in bourbon whiskey barrels. Profile: Dark & jammy with toasty vanilla notes. An artisan blend of bourbon barrel aged red wine. Some winemaking traditions were meant to be broken. That's why we rested our dark & jammy red blend in smoky aged bourbon casks. And when we cracked that barrel open after 3 months, let's just say we knew pretty quickly that we were onto something good. Cooper & Thief is a rich wine with warm vanilla flavors and some subtle spicy notes. It finishes with a smooth mouth feel reminiscent of a fine bourbon. Why oak? Oak makes wine taste better. A selection of the most expensive wines in the world are produced with oak aging. This isn't an opinion, it's true. Oak is crucial and everything from the type, size, age, grain and treatment of an oak barrel greatly affects the finished wine. Oak gives the wine sweetness, vanilla aromas and our smoky aged bourbon casks give our wine depth and another dimension of flavors. Red wine. 17% alc by vol.
