Cave de Tain:
  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.

  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

A really minerally St Joseph as the name would suggest. Needs 6-8 years.

Nose: blackberry, floral, cherry, raspberry, meaty, earthy, yet with light, elegant overtones. Palate: raspberry, blackberry, meaty richness, mineral notes, initially with hints of soy sauce on the back palate. Medium bodied, but with great depth -- an interesting contrast between the meaty, savoury rich flavours, and an overlying lightness and elegance. Savoury and elegant. Sharp lively acid, smooth but firm tannins. Long on the palate. Drinking very nicely now.
