    Default [TN] '07 Copain PN

    Tonight's dinner consisted of pan-seared duck breasts with morels and
    broccolini. For a wine, I went to one I'd recently acquired in a great
    deal from Crush:

    2007 Copain Pinot Noir "Tous Ensemble" Anderson Valley
    nose: pencil lead, tart red fruit, a hint of smoke
    palate: medium body, firm acidity, velvety

    I picked up a few of these from Crush when they were offered for $17.
    I'd heard lots of good things about Wells Guthrie's wines, and this
    seemed like a good opportunity for me to investigate. I was initially
    concerned about this bottle as the wine was quite dark in color, but the
    nose and palate both told a different story of a nuanced and low-key
    wine. As the last glass was the most appealing, we'll put this down for
    some time. It was also a great match with the duck and morels.

    I've liked the few Copains I've tried, should try more!

    I'm headed to Sonoma/Napa on the 14th for a week and I'm going to stop
    at Copain. Wells is a fellow Ohioan from Akron as is Jim Clendenon.
    I'vwe heard a lot of good things about Copain.
