Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

The 2001 Syrah Cailloux-Coccinelle comes from an interesting vineyard planted in a rocky riverbed. It reveals a broodingly dark purple color along with a gorgeous bouquet of bacon fat, black pepper, black fruits, and licorice. This is a hulk of a wine with full-bodied, powerful flavors that reveal surprising integration of acidity and tannin. Large-scaled and long, drink this impressive Syrah over the next decade.

Bright and juicy, with plum and berry flavors, balanced by lively acidity as the flavors linger enticingly on the finish. 243 cases made.

($32) Good medium ruby. Perfumed, Northern Rhone-like aromas of blackberry, black raspberry, gunflint, smoke and pepper. Brooding and ripe, with pure, firm-edged flavors of dark berries, meat and pepper. A densely packed wine that's distinctly unyielding today and needs patience.

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.

Wine Varietal: Syrah

While the rest of the world is calling it "Syrah," Australia and South Africa stick to "Shiraz," their name for the same grape. Previously it was thought that the name Shiraz originated from a city in Persia where the Syrah grape was believed to have originated. Recently U.S. and French researchers demystified the name debate when they discovered that the Syrah grape was indigenous to France. Intense, robust and sometimes referred to as "manly," Syrah grows principally in the Northern Rhone. The spicy, peppery grape also grows abundantly in Australia, South Africa, and California, where it takes on a softer, thicker character than its French version. Typical descriptors for Syrah include blackberry, dark chocolate, mint, eucalyptus, smoked meat, black pepper, liquorice, and cloves.
