($45; vinified with 100% whole clusters) Inky ruby. Impressively complex bouquet of boysenberry, blackcurrant, violet and smoky Indian spices, with a slow-building note of black olive. Sweet and incisive, offering vivid dark berry and floral flavors, with suave cola and star anise qualities gaining strength with air. The spiciness persists through the very long, sappy finish, adding cut to the sweet, densely packed dark fruit flavors. Showing a lot of complexity now but also built to age.

About This Producer


Wells Guthrie is a fervent believer that great wine begins in the vineyard. In pursuit of this, Copain has sought out vineyards with expositions, soil compositions, climates, clones, and rootstock selections capable of producing wines of distinction and singular character.

Copain's winemaking practices aim to express each site's unique qualities. Copain wines are highlighted by lower alcohols, natural vibrant acidity, gentle handling of the fruit and wine, native yeast ferments and minimal use of new oak.
