“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. 
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.  

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, Vinous | "...Spice-accented blackberry, lavender and vanilla scents plus a floral topnote on the highly aromatic nose. Spicy, sappy and well-concentrated, offering intense red and dark berry, baking spice, mocha and candied lavender flavors that expand with air..."

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 pts, Jeb Dunnuck | “Based on 92% Grenache and 8% Syrah, the 2019 The Story showed well, with pretty cherry and assorted red berry fruit as well as lots of peppery, herbal, and floral notes. Medium-bodied on the palate, this nicely balanced, elegant, Grenache-driven blend will keep for 8-10 years if well stored."
