Written By Treve Ring Libations / Red Wine Jun 25, 2010 Three Thieves The Show Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter PinterestCentral and North Coast AVA’s, California, United States $19-23Summertime, and the livin is easy…This wine is pretty showy – and not just because of the eye grabbing label. A big, juicy, balanced Cali Cab blend for under $20? A regular summer BBQ pick in my house. Jammy blackberries, dried blueberries, black cherries and spice throughout, with a nice mocha and vanilla lift to the finish. Some air time will increase the lushness. If you can’t find this particular label in your local liquor store, fret not – they created three special commemorative labels for this Show – all the same wine. Perfectly apt for grilled meats – especially with leg of lamb. Try with a thyme and wild blueberry glaze.Though the only grape varietal you’ll see on the label is Cabernet Sauvignon, American wine law allows a wine to be labeled as a varietal if it has 75% or more of that variety. The Show also has a backbone of Petit Sirah, with splashes of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot blended in.The story of the Three Theives began in 2001, when the trio—a.k.a Charles Bieler, Joel Gott, and Roger Scommegna—hit upon a brilliant thought. Realizing that there was an enormous excess of great wine being produced by premium wineries, and a flourishing market for quality wine at the $10 price point, they began buying wine from these wineries and creating their own blends, using their own winemaking skills to improve upon the original composition. The three partners got a reputation for ‘robbing’ vineyards blind of high-end varietals, at prices described as a ‘steal,’ and the name “Three Thieves” stuck.Rating: (click here to see what our wine ratings mean) Cabernet SauvignonCaliforniaRed WineWine Reviews SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Written By: Treve Ring Treve Ring is a wine writer, editor, judge, consultant and certified sommelier, and has been with EAT Magazine for over a decade.\r\n\r\nIn addition to her work with EAT, she is a Wine Critic and National Judge for ...
