Tain Cornas Les Arenes Sauvages
Tain Cornas Les Arenes Sauvages - One of the real star AC's of the Northern Rhone. This is a serious bottle of wine with plenty of structure and shape but also with plenty of plush fruit to justify it. Deep dark red with an intense nose of raspberries, spice and a hint of graphite.
The palate has more black fruits (blackberry and cherry), pepper and toast. The wine is clean and bright, with a silky mouthfeel and good length, which reveals an elegant finish. Approachable but evident tannins, you can drink this now or even age it for a bit.
