Cooper & Thief Sauvignon Blanc, Sonoma County, 2017
Citrus & spice with toasty vanilla notes Aged 3 months in tequila barrels. Barrel Source: Casa Noble Tequila. Master Blender: Jeff Kasava. Why oak? Oak makes wine taste better. Some of the most expensive wines in the world are aged in oak. Everything from the type, size, age, grain and treatment of an oak barrel greatly affects the finished wine. Oak gives the wine sweetness, creamy vanilla aromas, and our aged casa noble tequila barrels add even more depth and another dimension of flavor. Bringing in notes like spice and tropical fruits. Some winemaking traditions were meant to broken. That's why we rested our bright & crip Sauvignon Blanc in Aged Anejo Tequila Barrels. And when we cracked that barrel open after 3 months, let's just say we knew pretty quickly that we were on to something good. Copper & Thief Sauvignon Blanc is a rich wine with hints of citrus & spice. Toasty vanilla flavors and complex floral aromas. It finishes with a smooth mouth feel reminiscent of a fine tequila. copperandthief.com. 16.5% alc. by vol. Made in CA. Produced and Bottled by Copper & Thief Cellarmasters, Lodi CA.
