Description

Producer Profile

The Three Thieves believe that great wine is not a pleasure reserved for kings, but rather a privilege of life—something for everyone to enjoy. So they scour the globe to find the very best wines the world has to offer, then bring it back to share at a fair and honest price. These ‘Liberators of Fine Wines’ are delighted to present their latest score: a rich, rewarding Cabernet Sauvignon.

Viticulture

The Thieves treasure classic California Cabernet Sauvignon. This Cab is made in an approachable style with balanced, juicy fruit flavors supported by smooth, supple tannins. To further enhance the blend, the wine is infused with French and American oak, which beautifully complements the dark berry, black currant and cherry flavors, lending hints of warm spice and vanilla.

Winemaking

The Three Thieves can’t resist the allure of rubies, and this Cabernet Sauvignon sparkles like a gem. In the glass, it’s a brilliant ruby red, with inviting aromas of fresh cherries and toasted vanilla. Deep cherry and berry flavors are rich on the palate, leading the way for a powerful, full finish.

Oak Treatment

70% infused with French Oak staves; Further enhanced with French and American oak

Tasting Note

Why don’t you buy it and fucking taste it yourself! But seriously…this is beautiful the 34% coastal grapes give this wine a certain freshness that a lot of Cab/Sav’s don’t have, so while you have the balls and the body to the wine there is this ‘I’m not going to get a thick head’ feeling going on. All underpinned by the subtlety of the oak staves which provide that smooth deep fruit warmth you know and love. Well made, well priced and great philosophy.

Food Matching

Bottle opener, glass, chair, hand to face.
