Cave de Tain 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Area of Production: Northern Rhône, surrounding Tain-l'Hermitage, St Donat, Tournon. Grape Variety: 100% Syrah Yield: Limited specifically to 60 hl par ha by the Cave de Tain. Vinification: 100% of the grapes are destemmed. Vatting in stainless steel tanks (8 to 10 days). Characteristics: Brilliant, deep ruby colour. Fresh nose of red fruits (blackberry, blackcurrant) with notes of spices (pepper, cinnamon), and a hint of liquorice. On the palate, supple and smooth tannins: a good expression of light structured Northern Rhône Syrah. Drink in the early years. Tasting: Serve at around 15°C (57°F). Ideal with white meat, but also grilled or roasted meat, barbecues, or simply by the glass.

  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
