The Show Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Like a Hatch print for an Elvis gig, The Show grabs your attention. Big and bold, it is dominated by full flavors of dried black cherries, jammy preserves and complex toasty, vanilla, and spicy oak.

Three Thieves:
You may have heard the tale of the Three Thieves, three regular guys who threw away centuries of tradition and winemaking knowledge, and in the process, changed the wine industry forever.

You may have heard the tale of the Three Thieves, three regular guys who threw away centuries of tradition and winemaking knowledge, and in the process, changed the wine industry forever. Their story begins 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. Like Robin Hood and his Merry Men, the Three Thieves ‘stole’ from the rich, and made great wine accessible to everyone—from NASCAR fans looking for something to pair with their drive-thru dinners, to soccer moms looking for a respite from their busy days. They believed that there was more to good wine than fancy bottles, and their first release, a Zinfandel bottled in a one-liter glass jug with a screw top, proved their point when it was a huge hit with wine lovers everywhere. Soon afterwards, Three Thieves released jugs of Cabernet and Chardonnay to much hoopla and fanfare and their reputation as mavericks was sealed. Their outside-the-box thinking soon became inside-the-box thinking when they again pushed the boundaries with Tetra Pak Bandits. Inside of these lightweight, eco-friendly, resealable boxes, is the kind of tremendous quality wine people have come to expect from Three Thieves. More innovations—and lots of great wine— followed, including The Show, True Earth wines, and even a partnership with an honest-to-goodness real-life legend, Paul Newman, and the Newman’s Own Foundation. Rest assured that this story is not yet over, and that the Three Thieves will carry on blazing a trail in the wild, wild wine world. Read less

Granted I'm a wine novice, however I love this wine, was turned on to it by a wine club....can't walk into a store without buying it. The right blend of smoothness, dryness and taste.

The Show is a Cabernet with the style and flair of a show biz headliner at the price of a virtual unknown. Ray Isle of Food & Wine Magazine likes it so much he’s recommended it twice. As a Top 25 Wine of Summer he called it an “ebullient, cassis-driven Cabernet…” and to match a holiday rib roast he said it was “A full-throttle California Cabernet…It’s polished enough to serve with a rib roast, but it would also be fantastic with burgers.” Produced by celebrated Napa hero Joel Gott and his Three Thieves crew, the label is inspired by the famous Hatch Show Prints that have announced everything from the Rodeo to Louis Armstrong to Elvis concerts. The grapes are from Sonoma and Mendocino with a touch of Napa Valley. It has a tiny bit of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petite Sirah blended in and it’s aged in French and American oak barrels.
