“Some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment, and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next.” — Gilda Radner
 

Tasting Notes
Copia’s 2019 The Story displays extraordinary berry fruit and kirsch notes intermixed with fennel, violets, and graphite. Mediumto full-bodied, spice is also vibrantly layered in with a lovely extended finish. 
 
Winemaking
Varietals were handpicked in October at the peak of flavor ripeness and phenolic maturity. Grapes were carefully cluster sorted, 100% destemmed and fermented in stainless steel. After a cold maceration, daily punch-downs, pump-overs and pneumotage were conducted.  

Ratings
93 pts, Wine Enthusiast | “Opulent aromas of juicy black cherry and rosewater gummies show on the nose of this bottling. The palate picks up a firm tannic frame that gives form and relative restraint to the pomegranate, raspberry and dried mint flavors." - Matt Kettmann

92 pts, James Suckling | “Aromas of blueberry, nutmeg and white pepper follow through to a medium body … Nicely done.”

92 pts, Owen Bargreen | “The 2019 ‘The Story’ shows. Off white pepper dusted bacon flavors alongside a brilliant core of red fruits and stony undertones … Full-bodied, fresh and voluptuous …”

91-93 pts, Jeb Dunnuck | “The 2019 The Story checks in as 92% Grenache and 8% Syrah, and it's nicely textured, medium to full-bodied, and balanced, with youthful gamey, meaty, herbal-tinged fruits. It should easily be outstanding.”
