Aromas of Brioche and pear with a forward palate of enticing apple-pie aromas, ripe and zesty citrus and apple-skin flavors and a nicely tangy, chewy texture. Fermentation spontaneously occurs in barrels, with a further 12 months of aging on the wines fine lees in barrique of which is 5% new, lending layers of complexity to the wine.

Serves beautifly with creamy pasta dishes or skewered white meats on the barbeque.

Anderson Valley is located in the rolling hills of the coastal region of Mendocino County, 110 miles northwest of San Francisco. The western edge of the Anderson Valley, known to locals as the deep end—is located a mere 10 miles from the Pacific coast. From here, the low-lying, narrow valley is perfectly poised to capture the cool ocean breezes and funnel the early morning fog inland and upriver. Rain is often plentiful, although it can vary from year to year. Just a dozen miles from the chilly Pacific Ocean, numerous creeks and rivers snake through a rugged landscape that dips and swells from sea level to 2,500 feet in elevation.

Perched on a hillside overlooking the bucolic Russian River Valley, Copain specializes in vineyard designate Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. Founded in 1999, Copain, meaning ‘friend’ or ‘buddy’ in French, embodies our philosophy that wine enhances life’s most joyous occasions, and is an experience best shared with friends and family. Sourced from cool climate vineyards in Mendocino County, the Anderson Valley and the Sonoma Coast, the Copain portfolio consists of three distinct collections—Tous Ensemble, Les Voisins, and the vineyard designate wines. These wines have been long inspired by France’s Rhone Valley wine region resulting in Copain’s signature style of restrained, and elegant wines.
