Cave de Tain l'Hermitage Vin de Pays des Collines Rhodaniennes 2003

Member Review by fibo86:

Upon the pour the slight woft of blackberries and clove then an unfortunate stink of wet rusty metal (so a bit of time to air in the glass just in case....) Colour/Clarity Cherry with crimson hue, dull. Bouquet Lightens out to white pepper, tabbaco, clove and quite earthy not really able to smell much fruit. Flavour Dried prune, leathery,acidic and earthy Not too sure about this one........ don't really like it. No balance, doesn't seem to have much structure with a rather long acidic end, or may be it's just all too new as I'm used to Australian wines. Not for me though.

  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
