  • PnP. Deep garnet. Nose has cherry, red berries, earth, spice. Palate opens with rich flavors, but evolves into a crunchy stony texture by midpalate that makes it feel lighter and certainly more alive than the musty deep cherry aromas seem to promise. Can sense the beginnings of the more current Copain expression in this one. Looking back on my note from 2006, this does not seem to have changed much, so I think this has a years to go if you're so inclined.

  • Brought to a Bravo and enjoyed with salmon; popped and poured; great body and full red, with nice fruit-driven balance; middle finish; solid pinot effort; ready to drink

  • BYO'd to a restaurant which was pretty dark, so no comments on color. No decant and a bit closed at first, but w/ two glasses poured, and allowed to sit and open for an hour it opened up quite nicely when we got back around to it. Dark cherry, some interesting spice, this is a fairly big wine w/ a strong finish - no heat, good balance even elegance for its size. Didn't seem to be going downhill to me, but definitely ready to go. I have 2 more - drink over the next year or so.

  • It's now beginning to show it's age. Not as acidic as the last bottle but it's starting to show some browning on the edge. For me a big disappointment as I've loved some of the Hein's in the past but this one is not one of them. Sadly, I've got two bottles left and doubt very much that they will improve with age. Drink it up. I sure will.
