This squat one-liter bottle is not your average jug wine. Au contraire, it’s produced by three iconoclastic vintners who like to rock the boat: Charles Bieler, Joel Gott and Roger Scommegna, the three thieves who call themselves the “liberators of fine wine.” This wine, made from a blend of Napa Valley and Lodi grapes, kicks off with pretty cherry and earth tones…
When you see the price on this wine-in-a-box, you’re amazed. How do they make it so ripe, rich and delectable, at this price? Beats me. But it’s just delicious in fruity flavor, and puts to shame many Cabs that cost far more.
From Three Thieves, who are establishing a reputation for value, comes this Cab, a blend of four coastal counties from Paso Robles to Dry Creek. It’s ripe, soft and easy, with blackberry, chocolate, mint and vanilla flavors.
