  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 92

    The 2007 Syrah Hawke's Butte exhibits a floral, blueberry, and blackberry-scented nose revealing hints of asphalt and camphor in the background. With medium to full-bodied flavors as well as exceptional purity, texture, and depth, it should drink nicely for 7-10 years.

    ($45) Bright purple. Wild, intense aromas of black raspberry, cherry compote, gingerbread and floral oils. Incisive dark berry flavors are complicated by violet pastille, licorice and a touch of allspice. Possesses a powerful spine and displays outstanding finesse, finishing with impressive lift and zesty, spice-driven persistence. Showing more vivacity than the richer Garys' and will be approachable earlier, I'll bet. (JR)

  • 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.

    California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
