  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

Very appealing smoke and bacon nose follows through on palate. Really smooth mouthfeel.

Five glasses



Tasting Notes:

Deep dense garnet color with purple tints. Harmonious and intense nose of candied fruits and toasty overtones, cocoa beans, liquorice and spicy aromas. The palate is powerful, smooth and elegant. Full-bodied wine with silky tannins and ripe fruit. Well-balanced and exceptional concentration due to good climatic conditions. The peppery finish is long and persistent. A racy wine with over 8 years ageing capacity.

Situation: Northern Rhone valley, left bank.

Closure: Cork

Aged 12 months in French Oak.
