2005 Saison Des Vins Syrah L'hiver
"One of Copain's best values every year is the Saisons des Vins Syrah l'Hiver, Guthrie's interpretation of a St.-Joseph or Crozes-Hermitage. The 2005 reveals hints of tapenade, pepper, red cherries, and cassis along with zesty acidity and a fruit-driven style. About 15% whole clusters were used in its upbringing. This delicious, fun Syrah should drink well for 3-4 years."
