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: A Northern Rhone classic, this Syrah offers aromas of black cherry, black pepper and violets. The dark fruit and pepper follows through to a juicy, medium-bodied palate, with soft, plush tannins. Long and clean on the finish.
Serve With: Enjoy with strongly flavored cheeses, grilled meats or charcuterie.
