Our Single Vineyard wines convey the unique qualities bestowed by a specific vineyard during one season. We are highly selective with our vineyards, choosing only those with the best soil, climate and farming practices, all of which are reflected in the glass. While exquisite now, these wines are crafted to be saved and savored years after their release.

Vintage Notes: 

The 2012 vintage was a welcome relief following the challenges of 2010 and 2011. A wet winter was balanced by a moderate, slightly dry spring, with bud break and veraison occurring several weeks later than usual. Bestowing optimal conditions for slow, even ripening, a long Indian summer extended into early October. Harvest commenced approximately two weeks later than previous years, and was condensed into a few short weeks, with all of our fruit in by November 1.

Vineyard Notes: 

Syrah is exceedingly hard to find in the Pinot Noir-centric Anderson Valley, though Baker Ranch dared to plant it, and it delivers with flying colors. Sustainably farmed and wonderfully expressive, this wine offers a unique addition to the Copain Syrah portfolio.

Wine Profile: 

One of our most desirable wines, the 2012 Baker Ranch Syrah is delicate and structured, with a broad, soft palate and light body. Evocative of the terroir-driven Syrahs of the northern Rhône, this wine intrigues and enthralls with myriad layers of exotic spice.
