COPLAN VINEYARDS 2018 Barrel Select Pinot Noir, Petaluma Gap
- Fruit from the organically farmed Ayala Vineyard from the world famous McEvoy Ranch (wine and olive oil)
- Debut release - pure Pinot Noir exceptionalism
Definition of a reserve quality Pinot Noir - one clone, one site, great vintage
GOLD medal winner - San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition
WINEMAKER: Jacqueline Yoakum: Alumni of Littorai Schramsberg, Keller, Stags Leap Wine Cellars. Consulting winemaker Greggarious, Magnus and Italics.
AVA DESIGNATED: Petaluma Gap, Sonoma
WHAT WE TASTED: The nose opens up with orange blossom honey and fragrant heirloom plums. In the mouth, you will experience a taste of cherry cream pie with a flaky pastry crust. Fruitier, less tannic and higher levels of acidity in the wine will pair well with the rich food.
WHAT WE PAIRED:
- Cedar Plank Salmon or Halibut
- Stuffed Eggplant with Lamb and Pine Nuts
- Wild Mushroom Risotto
PERSONALITY: The Coplan family are all about sustainability and preserving the Sonoma wine country way of life. The property and vineyard is called Coplandia, which captures the family surname and a playful sense of purist farming practices and modern farmhouse architectural aesthetic. Winemaking duties have recently been taken over by Jacqueline Yoakum, who is known for wildcrafting wines as natural as can be.
- Native fermentation - another wildcrafted beauty
- 50% New Oak over 15 months
- A special Pinot clone 2A (Wedenswil)
