2019 The Story
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.
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."
2019 The Cure
2019’s The Cure G-S-M is a concentrated endeavor with fullbodied richness. It’s fully loaded with earthiness, incense, blue and black fruits, pepper, dried herbs, and floral notes. The Cure’s individuality really shines and it’s our most versatile wine pairing well with a wide range of cuisine.
93 pts + Cellar Selection, Wine Enthusiast | “This is an impressively structured blend of 45% Syrah, 29% Grenache and 26% Mourvèdre from two adjacent West Paso appellations. Dark-berry, roasted plum, light cola and black olive aromas lead into a grippy palate full of coffee, carob and cocoa flavors, with a splash of dark berry.” - Matt Kettmann
93 pts, James Suckling | “This is a fresh and polished red with sweet tea, tobacco and red fruit on the nose and palate. It’s medium-bodied with firm, silky tannins and a vivid finish. Nice tension at the end.”
93 pts, Vinous | "...Bright and focused on the nose, displaying red and blue fruit preserve, floral, vanilla and baking spice qualities and a touch of smokiness. Deep yet energetic in style, delivering appealingly sweet cherry, blueberry, floral pastille and cola flavors that show no rough edges..." - Josh Raynolds
93 pts, Jeb Dunnuck | “The 2019 The Cure (45% Syrah, 29% Grenache, and 26% Mourvèdre) is darker and meatier, with solid black cherry and blackberry-like fruits as well as peppery herbs, iron, and gamey nuances. Beautiful on the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, has some classic Syrah bloody meat character, ripe yet firm tannins, and a great finish."
92 pts, Owen Bargreen | “Full-bodied with good structure and plenty of smoky and savory tones.”
