  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    Opaque violet color. Ripe blackberry and blueberry on the highly perfumed nose, with complicating licorice pastille and olive accents. Broad, gently chewy dark berry preserve and floral flavors show a rich, liqueur-like quality lifted by bright supporting acidity. Juicy, focused and very persistent on the finish, with the dark fruit flavors showing a sappy tone and gentle tannic grip. (JR)

    The 2010 Syrah Brosseau bursts from the glass with dark red cherries, blueberries, spices and minerals. It is both intensely mineral and explosive in its fruit. Tar, licorice and smoke are some of the notes that wrap around the powerful, insistent finish. The combination of intensity and varietal character is highly appealing. This is a fabulous showing. The soils at Brosseau are mostly decomposed granite. The Syrah clone planted here originates from Jean-Louis Chave.

  • 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.
