Cain "Cuvee Nv5" Napa Valley NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Cain Cuvee NV5<br/><br/>Without a doubt, Cain Cuvee is an original creation. Like Cain Concept and Cain Five, it is a Cabernet blend, but of the three wines, it is the most creative endeavor. Unlike Cain Five and Cain Concept, which are both about place, Cain Cuvee is about Cain Vineyards and their vision of what classical red wine can be. Especially with this Cuvee, where the opportunity arose to create a Cabernet blend that is truly silky and sits lightly and refreshingly on the palate.<br/><br/>

NV5 contains fruit grown in the heart of the Napa Valley and from historic benchland vineyards at the foot of the mountains. These grapes provide the base of the blend and roundness to the body. Then, being Cain, we work with grapes grown in the cooler "Of our three Cabernet blends the Cuvee uses the most Merlot-lately more than 40%-which creates the plush supple base. Mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc lend aromatic complexity and a bit of edginess to the taste so that the wine will dance on your palate. Also original to the Cuvee is the use of a portion of the previous vintage. This gives complexity and polish to the finish."

The Cuvee blend draws on a few key components to make it what it is. Mountain grown Cabernet Franc contributes the aromatic top notes; Merlot grown on the clay lenses of the valley floor lays down the silky base; selected lots with an extra year of barrel-age layer in complexity.
