👃 Dried blackberries, dried blueberries, over-ripe black cherry, crushed dark chocolate | 👅 Black cherry & strawberry syrup reduction, over-ripe nectarine skin, dark chocolate sauce, light tar notes, acidity/tannins persists with a long, round finish. Satisfying.
Cork pulled for slow oxidation, 11H rest at time of notes.
The end of the line for our Annette's stock, starting life in our cellar as a 4-pack back in Nov. 2005 ($22.50), this has been an enjoyable run.

Genuinely one of the best wines I’ve had. Bought after a tasting, it stood up well with pancetta tomato sauce. Had an excellent fruity finish and really good body without being too heavy. Wish I had another bottle. — 3 days ago
Fun to experience TRB’s winemaking with Anderson Valley fruit. Nose is lighter and more lifted than his Sonoma bottlings, yet still has the density and depth of fruit expected of his style. There’s a background radiation of higher acid from times past. At this age it’s all in balance with the savory and bright elements perfectly balancing Thomas’s extraction level. This might be peak.

High acidity and citrus notes in this pale Pinot rose. Sublte minty aftertaste. Refreshing and soft on the palate, it’s a very approachable and delicious summer wine. — 5 days ago

Very tasty. Gold, medium weight. Restraint. Bright Flinty Mineral. Zero butter. A tiny bit of toast on the finish. A little bound up upon opening. Gets really nice about an hour in. Vineyard is in Anderson Valley. Wells Guthrie is a very talented winemaker. Pretty sure this was his last vintage at Copain. — 8 days ago
This is as good as sparkling Rosé gets in California - certainly for the price point. 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay. Wonderful salmon-pink color with a delicious palate of cherry, apricot, musk melon and grapefruit peel. Beautiful balance of fruit and off-dry character. Shows the pure class of Anderson Valley. — 4 days ago
