Michael, thanks for this TN.
Cooper Mountain had some rough years when they were first getting going. They released some sketchy product a couple of times when they were first developing and "finding their way" with their farming techniques and their grapes. Think it was more a development cycle than anything else...the techniques and the vineyards had to mature. But they perservered, god bless 'em, and I think you're right: they are turning out some decent stuff these days.
That's one of the problems of organics/biodynamics---and all new pathways, really: there is a period of development, of learning, of becoming accustomed to dealing with the new, before stability can be reached. Takes patience. And a certain bit of understanding and patience on the part of the consumer too, I think.
