    ($50) Inky purple. Explosively aromatic nose features fresh strawberry and redcurrant, minerals, flowers and a hint of smoked meat. Very crisp syrah with impressive energy; the bright red berry flavors expand and gain in sweetness toward the back. Closes on a brisk, vibrant note, with superb lift and length. Amazingly persistent and sweet wine.

    Tightly wound, firm and intense, with vivid blueberry and blackberry flavors, flora and spice notes and chewy tannins.

    Wells Guthrie appears to have hit a home run with the 2005 Syrah Garys' Vineyard, a seriously packed and stacked, black/purple-colored Syrah boasting notions of camphor, blackberries, and acacia flowers in an opulent, full-bodied, dense, intense style. Remarkably for a wine this powerful and rich, Guthrie told me the alcohol is under 14%. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring and enjoy it over the following 10-15 years.

  • 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.
