Copain Tous Ensemble Pinot Noir 2017
The 2017 Tous Ensemble Pinot Noir is our second offering from the Sonoma Coast appellation. Taking what we learned the previous year and isolating our favorite blocks in the vineyard, we were able to take the wine to the next level of quality. The goal for this blend is a wine that is true to the Copain style of being an elegant expression of Pinot Noir, yet a bit more friendly to drink upon release. On the nose are screaming aromatics: hints of pomegranate and anise, and, as the wine opens up, strawberry and black tea emerge. This wine is plush on the entry, but given tension by its fine grain tannin and nervy acid.

|Fresh and fruity, with buoyant raspberry and cherry flavors, backed by crisp acidity. The lithe finish offers light mineral and spice notes. Drink now through 2023.|

|Made in a light, buzzy style, this red is juicy in wild strawberry, accompanied by savory threads of black tea and forest floor. Soft integrated tannins make it appealing in the glass, the acidity lively and complementary.|
