2004 Copain Syrah Cailloux & Coccinelle (USA, Washington, Columbia Valley, Walla Walla Valley)

Opened a day in advance and stored re-corked in the cellar. Deep, opaque ruby red and purple color. Nose is of raw beef and lardon with some cracked pepper and blueberry. On the palate, it’s a very velvety texture with lots of black and blueberry fruit underlined by a little vanilla and black pepper. Finishes very long. Overall, this reminds me a little of 2003 St. Joseph in that it’s very ripe, yet not overblown. As this keeps losing its baby fat, I expect great things from this wine. Certainly should not be touched for 5+ years in my opinion.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
