2015 Cave de Tain Syrah

Amazing 2015 vintage of France
From one of the top Syrah producers of France!
They produce some amazing Hermitage and Crozes Hermitage (of course at prices much higher than this wine)

2015 Cave de Tain Syrah...$12.99

Deep purple,Intense bouquet of red fruits melded with spices, a hallmark of the Syrah varietal. Round and supple, dominated by notes of raspberry and black currant, with a touch of pepper.   Perfect by the glass with snacks, meats "a la plancha", cold meats,Also Mediterranean cuisine or a cheese platter.
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 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.
