The Cave de Tain is among the world’s very greatest wine producers, a giant of the Northern Rhone with over 50 acres in Hermitage, a stunning, state-of-the-art winery (10 million Euros invested over the past five years) and a brilliant team of winegrowers.
Besides Hermitage, they produce most of the region’s IGP (previously Vin de Pays) and half of all Crozes Hermitage (but bottling only a third of that under their own top label), as well as St Joseph, Cornas and St. Peray.
Tasting Notes: This classic Saint Joseph offers bright red berry notes over backdrop of mineral and black fruit character. Assertive, ripe and well-textured on the palate, with a long, persistent finish.
Serve With: Excellent with a wide range of game and red meats (especially prime cuts of beef, and pepper-rubbed rack of lamb), strong cheeses, and rich, earthy dishes like wild mushroom risotto.
