Copeland Creek Vineyards
Copeland Creek Vineyards is a hillside property located near the Pacific Ocean in Sonoma County. Winemaker Don Baumhefner has worn many different hats in the industry. In addition to making wine, he has also worked as a sommelier and has established several wine bars in San Francisco.
The 2004 Copeland Creek Vineyards Pinot Noir is from a particularly well-drained part of the estate. Foggy mornings retain acidity in the grapes, giving way to sunny afternoons that help to develop distinctive varietal characteristics. This wine has notes of spicy cherries and raspberries.
The winery’s 2002 Chardonnay is a delicious, refreshing wine with nice citrus flavors and a lush texture from being fermented in 100% French oak barrels. 466 cases of this wine were produced.
The 2001 Copeland Creek Vineyards Meritage is made with 44% Cabernet Franc, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 27% Merlot grown on Sonoma Mountain. This wine was aged in French oak barrels and has flavors of black cherries. 892 cases of this wine were made.
