NO BRAINER CLUB 6 BOTTLES FOR $100

Copain "Hawkes Butte" Syrah 2012

Regular price $37.99 Sale price $44.99

Dense, meaty and powerful to the core, the 2012 Syrah Hawkes Butte is a wine built on structure. The contours are a bit angular, but there is nevertheless plenty of depth, resonance and pure power. This is one of the more massive wines in the range, but there is quite a bit to admire in the wine's dark, mysterious personality. The 50% whole clusters are nearly buried by the intensity of the fruit and firm tannins that need at least a year or two to soften.

I was quite taken with the wines I tasted from Copain and proprietor Wells Guthrie this year. The Tous Ensemble range delivers outstanding value, while the best Syrahs and Pinots soar with exceptional beauty and a sense of weightlessness that is compelling. In particular, several of the 2012 Syrahs are utterly captivating.

Guthrie is among the producers who prefer to pick at slightly lower sugars, quite a move from the much riper style he was once known for. Readers will find much to admire in these gorgeous, artisan wines.
