Copain Anderson Valley "Tous Ensemble" 2012 Chardonnay, $15.99-$28.99, 91+ points, was a bright gold color with a lime green hue.
Aromas of apple, melon, citrus, and a floral component were very good.
Barely medium bodied with good acidity and flavors reflective of the aromas supported by a flinty mineral character, intense ginger, and black pepper notes were refreshingly delicious, and carried along with the well integrated 13.4% alcohol deep into the long finish.
If you're looking for a Big Buttery Cali Chardonnay, you'll have to go elsewhere, but if you want to try a full-flavored yet brazen Chardonnay, and at an incredible power-buy price, well. . .
