Crown + Thieves 2014 'Broken Wing' Merlot
Crown & Thieves is a project at the hatch, a label of wines that shines a light on the guys in the cellar. Jason speaks about the cellar team as a brotherhood; all for one and one for all. Although Jason’s name appears on the label, he is adamant that these wines represent the eclectic and hard working “scoundrels” on the winemaking team. Crown & Thieves allows creativity in the winery to craft beautiful wines in a sometimes offbeat way. It is a premium label that isn’t afraid to try new things whether it’s ageing wines in less than typical vessels or working with rarely seen grapes in the Okanagan. Crazy stuff like that. The aesthetics of winemaking and philosophy behind these wines is very rooted in Old World tradition but these particular wines have been pushed to their boundaries of expression.
