2015 Cooper's Cuvee - Oaklee's Blend
In 2015 we lost our Calistoga Petite Sirah fruit contract due to replanting of the vineyard... Cooper was very concerned we would not be producing a wine for the vintage so we got a little creative. We had some cabernet sauvignon (that we were not using to produce our 74-41 cabernet sauvignon) and Kian found some available zinfandel fruit at harvest from a small grower in Yountville... and we came up with a very special blend. We blended the fruit and crafted a couple of barrels for our 2015 Cooper's Cuvee - Oaklee's Blend (a tribute to our chocolate lab who passed away in 2017). We know Oaklee would have been proud of his wine - dark and briary fruit (cranberry/raspberry/blackberry) followed by just a kiss of chocolate and spice - the wine has a BIG personality just like Oaklee had.
The wine was aged in French Oak (45% new) for 22 months. Only 50 cases were produced.
In 2016 petite sirah returns to our porfolio under our new Cooper's Cuvee BLACK PAW label.
You should only make wines you love to drink...
