Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

($50) Good saturated ruby-red color. Aromas of almost liqueur-like black cherry and black raspberry. Fatter and more mouthfilling than the Cerise, with a more exotic aspect. Very ripe and nicely balanced, though. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and a peppery nuance. Larger-scaled than the Cerise but less subtle and complex. From a cool vineyard and heavy clay soil, producing what Guthrie describes as a bigger style of pinot.

Burghound | Rating: 90

(from Anderson Valley fruit bottled at 14.4%) A fascinating nose that mixes somewhat incongruous elements yet is beguiling anyway as there are ripe and sweet red and blue berry fruit aromas, menthol, spice and what I can only describe as a baby/talcum powder nuance that complements the rich, forward, succulent and very stylish medium full flavors that are sappy and noticeably sweet on the solidly long, firm and dusty finish. This is deceptively structured as the succulence of the finish largely buffers the structure but it's there and this should age well.

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: Pinot Noir


Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
