The Cooper’s Oak Cab

Reader-recommended, blogger-approved.

Their cabernet sauvignon is one of the better Missouri wines – nay, one of the better cabs period – I’ve had in a long time. It’s chewy, huge (13.9%) and packing the tannins to match. Unsubtle, but this may be the first age-worthy Missouri wine I’ve had. Very, very impressive. All hail Cooper’s Oak Winery.

  1. Very glad you liked (loved?) Cooper’s Oak cab. Did you go to their facility in Higbee or buy in Columbia? I think you’ll be impressed with all of their “bold reds”. They even have a very popular sweet red called “My Sweet Dear”. It cracks me up because the label has a charming picture of a deer head on it. Can’t vouch for it because I don’t care for sweet wines, but I’m sure it’s good. Eagle Liquor is another place in Columbia you can purchase Cooper’s Oak wines, in addition to Patricia’s and Hy-Vee.

  2. I bought it at Hy-Vee in Columbia, but a Higbee visit might need to be on the summer list. I’ll have to check out Eagle Liquor sometime…I know they have a pretty good selection.
