User Reviews for Cain Cain Five Cabernet Blend

Winemaker's Notes:

Note: due to the scarcity of this wine, we must limit orders to 6 bottles per client WINEMAKER TASTING NOTES: �2004 is a classic Cain Five�in the mold of the 1991 and 1994 vintages, but more refined. As with all vintages, the 2004 is all about the weather: at bloom and during ripening. In 2004, we had a poor bloom in our mountain-top vineyard, resulting in a yield smaller than our normal 1.5 tons per acre. The final blend incorporated more Merlot and less Petit Verdot than in some previous years. This was a natural reflection of the gentle, moderate ripening conditions. There was less heat than in the warmest vintages, which, in turn, gave us good concentration along with deeper and �sweeter� tannins. The 2004 Cain Five epitomizes the character of the Cain Vineyard: freshness and vibrancy are the keys. Aromas of citrus and Douglas-fir overlay the black currant and black cherry of our mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate is juicy, sweet, and mouth-watering. As always, we blend to achieve balance and continuity on the palate, followed by a long finish. While this wine drinks beautifully today, I expect the 2004 to age gracefully over the next ten years.� RECOMMENDED FOOD PAIRINGS: Grilled Beef tender with sweet onion and red peppers Rosemary Lamb chops Aged Manchego cheese from Spain
