  When you think Cave de Tain, your mind should instantly jump to Syrah. Syrah is the only red varietal that Cave de Tain makes into wine, making it a specialist in its production. Not only that, but it is also the leading producer of “cru” wines in the Northern Rhone Valley, with about 2,500 acres of grapes planted. Cave de Tain is a collective of about 330 growers located in Rhone Valley, France. Louis Gambert de Loche founded Cave de Tain in 1933 and became its first president. The wines produced as a part of the Cave de Tain l’Hermitage are sourced across many terroirs and domaines, including Crozes Hermitage, Hermitage, Cornas, Saint Peray, Saint Joseph, and Vin de Pays. Not only does it encompass wine produced across these regions, but it produces almost half of the wine grown in the Crozes Hermitage. Read less

Three glasses



Tasting Notes:

Deep garnet-red color with purple tints. The nose is rich and powerful, developing fresh blackcurrant, red berries with a hint of spice and a touch of vanilla. Fresh and ripe on the palate, with a smooth tannic structure. Full bodied wine with a remarkable length representative of its origin. This wine is a fine blend of strength and elegance, with a perfectly harmonious finish.

Vinification: All grapes are destemmed; vatting around 15-20 days. Partial ageing in French oak barrels (50 % of the blend for 12 months).
