Crown + Thieves 2014 ‘Scoundrels Punch’

Another Jason Parkes Customs special bottling. 58% Merlot and 42% Cab Franc from Bordertown Vineyard in Osoyoos. I’ve asked for more details but the lads are keeping it secret but considering it was a Crown + Thieves wine that won us a Lt. Governor I feel like we’re pretty safe. Plus it’s super cool bottle.

Only 150 cases made.

‘Gotta admit, when I picked up this massive, hefty, supersized bottle, I thought it was a 1L. How it is possible to weigh so much for a 750ml? How thick is this glass? Is it lined with lead? Is this a joke? Does this one bottle weigh more than the 6-pack delivery of Cono Sur on my counter? After my posing questioning period abated, I tucked into this (equally hefty) blend of merlot and cabernet franc from the stand-apart folks at The Hatch. Scoundrels Punch is another in the Crown + Thieves special bottlings, via Jason Parkes. Here 58 percent merlot is worked with 42 percent cabernet franc, all from Osoyoos’ Bordertown (in sight of the US border) vineyard. Thick in the mouth with dense and ripe black fruits, smoked stones, branch, dark florals, graphite, blueberry compote. There’s an edginess to the tannins, surprisingly compliant, to hem all in to a nutmeg, clove finish. Drinking well now upon release, though will continue to hold for a couple years in your cellar easy. If you’ve extra strong shelves for the overweight bottle, that is… 89 points – Treve Ring, Gismondi on Wine, March 09 2018
