($45) Opaque ruby with a bright rim. A drop-dead sexy bouquet of red and dark berry scents, with complicating notes of Asian spices, patchouli and dried violet. Sweet black raspberry and mulberry flavors provide excellent palate coverage and pick up notes of olive tapenade and candied flowers with aeration. Some fine-grained tannins creep in on the spice-dominated finish but are quickly absorbed by the lush fruit. Still quite primary and in need of patience-say four more years or so.

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.
