''Black-plum and blueberry flavors are pristine in this fresh, fruit-driven expression of Northern Rhône Syrah. Medium bodied and mouthwatering in acidity, it's a juicy red with wide appeal.'' Anna Lee C. Iijima, Wine Enthusiast Magazine

Hi Folks, From the moment we showcased the 2018 Cave de Tain Collines Rhodaniennes Marsanne from the Northern Rhône it has awoken a deep desire among you for more straight varietal classically made Northern Rhône wines that don't break the bank. And its good to know we haven't had to wait a long time to find one for you!... Yep you guessed it, It comes from that same trusted winery that you know and love.. Cave de Tain  with their straight varietal 100% Syrah (This is the Northern Rhône after all, where Syrah is King and Queen; the most sacred red varietal.) In regards to the flavour profile of the 2018 Cave de Tain Première Note Syrah you will find distinct black cherry, black pepper and violet aromas initially on the nose with dark fruit and pepper following through to a juicy, medium-bodied palate, with soft, plush tannins. Long and clean on the finish. From just $21.99 this offer's superb quality for Northern Rhône Syrah, so much so that it hasn't escape the attention of the eagle eyed wine press who have spoken about this so eloquently below! 

''Lively, spice-inflected black/blue fruit aromas and flavors take on an earthy nuance as the wine opens up. Smooth and open-knit, showing good depth and a nicely persistent, smoky finish framed by smooth tannins. This is a classically styled Syrah.'' Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media

''Black-plum and blueberry flavours are pristine in this fresh, fruit-driven expression of Northern Rhône Syrah. Medium bodied and mouth-watering in acidity, it's a juicy red with wide appeal.'' Anna Lee C. Iijima, Wine Enthusiast Magazine

''The 2018 vintage is good quality. It has aromas of wet rosemary, spice and bouquet garnis.  The palate is full bodied, spicy, has soft tannins and a medium length finish.'' Sean Mitchell, GrapeObserver.com

''The bouquet gives crushed red berry fruits, raspberry with a sweet curl to it. The palate holds gentle berry fruits which develop as they go, the right way round rather than all at the start. There’s a note of licorice and darker, black cherry, fruit on the finish.'' John Livingstone-Learmonth, DrinkRhone.com

And now for the all important vintage report.... Fantastic news; Northern Rhône 2018 has been declared a great vintage which has had a plethora of finely tuned Northern Rhône wine writer's jumping for joy below!

''The Northern Rhône is unquestionably on a string of excellent vintages, with 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 offering incredible levels of quality. Theirs a vibrancy and perceived freshness as well as beautiful purity of fruit that makes them incredibly drinkable.” Jeb Dunnuck

''At the moment, I’d put 2015 and 2018 in the “great vintage category.” Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate Magazine

''The quality and complexity of flavour is very promising for 2018 in the Northern Rhone.'' Jancis Robinson

''2018 in the Northern Rhône is a vintage of scale and power for many of the reds, more clarity of fruit, and a silky quality to the tannins.'' John Livingstone-Learmonth, DrinkRhone.com
