9. Cave de Tain Syrah Esprit de Granit Saint Joseph (2010)

« Prev Next » 9 of 12
Previously available for $29.99
A bit stemmy on the nose with attractive green olive, caper and black pepper aromas over somewhat intrusive new oak. This shows noticeable dry extract in the mouth with a bit of a pasty feel, even though the wine manages to remain fairly fresh feeling. The flavors are decidedly in the red fruit end of the spectrum with a nice herbal edge and a slight stemmy undertone. A touch of dryness appears on the back end along with some green peppercorn spice that vanishes on the modest finish which is dominated by wood tannin. This seems to have had some good raw material, but is a bit too extracted and oaky. 85pts
