Cooper & Thief Red Blend

Wow!     Copper & Thief is a crazy-tasty little drop (at 17% ABV, it’s more than a “little drop”). The 2014 vintage is a blend of Merlot, Syrah, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Here is the kicker–that lush blend of juice is aged for three months in used bourbon barrels. The result is “Dark & Jammy”, just like it says on the label. I’m thinking this is the sort of bottle you bring out when there is a chill in the air and a fire in the fireplace. Perfect with a hearty meal or just for sipping after dinner. BTW, as many folks know, “cooper” refers to the skilled craftsmen who make the all-important oak barrels. And “thief” refers to a long-stemmed tube used by wine makers to extract (“steal”) a little sample by dipping into the barrel.  25.00
