Richly colored, the wine is full-bodied, round, lush, and loaded with sweet, dark fruits, salty minerality herbs, and earthy accents. Soft and polished, fresh, fruity, and chewy, this should age quite nicely. Drink from 2024-2040.

Glossy, as well as fresh, forward, round and polished, here you find a floral accented, early-drinking charmer with a blackberry, plum, and espresso-stained palate that should drink quite well on release. Drink from 2023-2035.

Underbrush, pepper, minerality essences, and spicy, leafy herbs create the nose. On the palate the wine is medium-bodied, fresh, polished, and deceivingly easy to drink, finishing with a peppery edge to the chalky finish. Give it a year or so i the cellar to come around. Drink from 2025-2032.

Lush, round and soft-textured, the sweet red berries show freshness and lift. Medium/full-bodied, forward and fruity, you can enjoy this relatively soon after release with just a year or two of aging.

Medium-bodied, soft, fresh, bright and already expressing its smoked, roasted black cherry essence, this is going to be quite tasty within a few years of release, once the oak has become better integrated.

Full-bodied, powerful, ripe and with layers of fresh olive-tinged, red pit fruits on the nose and palate, you find a peppery red berry finish. Leave it for about 5 years and it should be quite nice to enjoy.

The top wine from Cave de Tain is deep and dark in color. The intoxicating nose shows incense, espresso, black cherry smoke, pepper, underbrush, herbs and olives. Powerful, full-bodied and concentrated on the palate, the wine hits all the right marks with its perfectly ripe tannins and ever better, its layers of gorgeous ripe fruits. Lay this down for a decade if you can and enjoy over the following 20-25 years or more.

Incense, smoke, espresso, black and blue fruit with cracked pepper create the core here. Full-bodied, round, soft, spicy and loaded with peppery red fruits on the palate and in the finish, this going to be just great after it ages for at least 5 years or so.

Powerful, full-bodied, rich and concentrated with touches of vanilla, espresso, smoke, red fruits, herbs and black pepper. There is a lushness to the texture making this modern, but so what? The finish loads you up with dusty tannins, round, chewy fruit and peppery spices.

Forward, fresh, and already working hard to show off its fruity side with all its sweet, ripe cherries and red plums, bottled without the use of sulfur, the wine is quite forward, making it easy to drink today. The finish, with its pepper and cherries offers charm, however is a bit drying in the endnotes.

Smoke, espresso and dark red fruits come alive in the nose and on the full-bodied, richly textured palate. The wine is concentrated and tannic, but the fruits and the tannins are ripe, still, give this 5-7 years in the cellar, or more before touching a bottle.
