Cellar for up to 8 years. No need to decant before serving.

The Mettlers have grown grapes in the Lodi Valley in California ever since the late 1800s. In 1999 they finally started producing their own wines, and in 2018 Adam Mettler was named Winemaker of the Year by Wine Enthusiast. Today the eight generation of the family are passionate about sustainability and farm their estate organically to preserve the land in perfect condition for the future.

Lodi is blessed with a warm Mediterranean climate with ample sunshine and low rainfall. This makes it ideally suited to growing powerful reds like Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Copacetic is the family’s Zinfandel-based blend made from estate vineyards planted on sandy loam soils which force the vines to dig deep for nutrients and water. The Mettler vineyards are planted in Mokelumne River which is referred to by some as “Old Lodi” as it’s considered the historical centre of the region.

Luscious dark berries, cherries, and hints of toast and dark chocolate dominate on the nose, while the first sip reveals a generous full body, smooth tannins, and a long and elegant finish. The careful balance between mouthwatering freshness and bright fruit flavours makes this red a great match for rich tomato-based sauces like a hearty wild boar ragu or a prime steak.
