At the blending table each year, Anita takes great pride in the fact that a Grenache should be a Grenache! Hence the almost 100% Grenache-dominated blend. Copia’s Story tends to be spicy and lively with big powerful berry flavors, and this year is no exception. There is a gorgeous blackcurrant note blended with peppercorns, anise, and violets from the tiny bit of Syrah that composes this wine. Deep purple, medium-bodied and vibrant, The Story is a showstopping wine with all the flair and fun that comes with a Grenache-driven blend.


93 pts, Jeb Dunnuck | "Lots of kirsch and blackberry fruits as well as hints of iron, tapenade, and pepper emerge from the 2018 The Story, which is 97% Grenache and 3% Syrah. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, it's beautifully balanced and has a cool-climate, complex style and a great finish."

91pts, Wine Enthusiast | "This is a dark and intense expression of Grenache, starting with boysenberry fruit and warm licorice spice. The roasted black-plum flavor of the palate is layered with oak smoke, star anise and gingersnaps, with brisk acidity and a tense structure holding up the finish." -Matt Kettmann
