    The 2009 Pinot Noir Wentzel emerges from the glass with heady dark cherries, spices, licorice and new leather. This is one of the more textured 2009s Pinots at Copain. Waves of fruit flow effortlessly to the long, pure finish. The Wentzel is slightly closed at present, but it shows fabulous length and should drink beautifully once the layers of flavor flesh out over time. The finish remains totally soft and inviting.

    Vivid red. Sexy aromas of candied red fruits, dried rose, allspice and minerals, with a suave oak spice nuance and a hint of candied orange. Sappy and broad on entry, then more tangy and linear in the mid-palate, with a firm mineral underpinning to its sweet raspberry and cherry flavors. Picks up a deeper cherry pit quality with air and finishes with strong grip and persistent tangy florality. This should age well.

  • 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.
