Winemakers Notes - This wine is vinified and aged exactly like the Cain Five, but the core of our Cain Concept-The Benchland is Cabernet Sauvignon grown on the classical "benchlands" that have defined the greatness of the Napa Valley for more than 100 years. Naturally, in the "Cain Way," we blend in the sister varieties to build complexity, to add nuance, to articulate the structure, and to draw the wine to a satisfying close.
The core of our Cain Concept - The Benchland is about Cabernet Sauvignon from the classical "benchlands" of the Napa Valley. But, on its own the Cabernet Sauvignon can be a bit simple, so, in the Cain Way, we have blended judicious quantities of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot to build complexity, to add nuance, to articulate the structure, and to add length to the finish of the wine. The Franc gives a bit of lift to the nose, and the Merlot gives a bit of fat to the entry and mid-palate, while the Verdot adds backbone to the blend. Cabernet Sauvignon 61%, Merlot 16%, Cabernet Franc 12%, Petit Verdot 11%.
