2016 Copain "Les Voisins" Yorkville Highlands Syrah (Previously $36)

SKU #1487856 95 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Wells Guthrie made this wine after selling Copain to Jackson Family in 2016. A blend of syrah from the High Rock, Yorkville Estate and Hawk’s Butte vineyards, all between 1,200 to 1,600 feet in altitude, this was fermented with ambient yeasts, then aged in neutral barriques for 18 months. It starts out with the scent of a field of lavender. Then, between the wine’s tactile gentleness and lasting coastal forest scents, it develops into a glorious Pacific coast red.

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Syrah Les Voisins is medium ruby-purple with an inviting nose of warm marionberry, blackberry, boysenberry and blueberry—wonderful layering of black and blue fruits!—with mint chocolate, roasted coffee bean, olive and violet nuances. The palate is medium-bodied with fantastic intensity, expertly framed with grainy tannins and great freshness, finishing long. This is so delicious! (EB) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Nicely ripe fruit aromas and flavors meet seductive baking-spice and chocolate accents in this medium-bodied, poised and silky textured wine. It’s surprisingly elegant and well balanced for a wine so concentrated. (JG) Inner quote mark (8/2020)

Now this one is just outrageous! Our winery-direct relationship allowed us to get the deal of the decade on this majestic 95-point Syrah from one of the region’s most highly acclaimed producers and winemakers, Copain’s Wells Guthrie. With other producers, such as Halcón, the Yorkville Highlands AVA is quickly forging a reputation as one of the best terroirs in California for Syrah. The rugged hillsides and rocky schist soils produce wines of stunning concentration and depth. This has those classic Syrah qualities of purple flowers, peppercorn, smoky bacon fat, and wild forest berries. And the price—well, you’ll just have to take a look!

The easy-going bistro style to this wine is genuinely pleasurable. If you're compelled to look closely, there are some really good grapes displaying beautifully integrated flavors with sneaky concentration and length. The wine is made in an unpretentious style that doesn't stilt with new wood or over-extracted tannins. Instead there's a levity that goes with the particular strengths of this sun-drenched mountain terroir.
