2012 Copain Syrah Les Voisins
"This medium bodied wine is sure to please those who are partial to Syrah, from the inviting nose of spice and dried herbs, through to the red and purple fruits on the palate. Its bright acidity provides an ideal balance to the firm but juicy structure.
Les Voisins. French for “the neighbors,” our Les Voisins wines are derived from closely clustered, neighboring vineyards, offering a nuanced and tightly focused reflection of Anderson Valley and Yorkville Highlands.
Les Voisins Syrah originates from three vineyards in Yorkville Highlands that share not only a property line, but also schist soils reminiscent of the northern Rhône. It is these soils that contribute to the spiciness and backbone of this Syrah. These vineyards are the source of three of our Single Vineyard bottlings. Fortunately, Wells Guthrie holds back a bit of fruit to blend together for Les Voisins." - Winery
