Cain Five 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The Cain Five is very round, smooth, and full-bodied. It is quite drinkable today, but it will develop in the next couple of years, and it is sure to last 15 or more years. Although the first notes are of mocha and vanilla, a very pure cassis is hiding in the background (which bodes well), and the full, sweet entry fills out to a satisfying mid-palate, leading to a long, smooth finish.

    Cain Five was founded in 1980 by Joyce and Jerry Cain on 550 acres of the historic McCormick Ranch on Spring Mountain in the Napa Valley. Cabernet Sauvignon was the focal point of their project, blended with its Bordeaux friends Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, a.k.a. the Cain Five. Nancy and Jim Meadlock joined them in 1986 and became sole owners when the Cains retired in 1991. The vineyards are situated on the sides of a valley bowl, in the hills of the Mayacamas Mountains. The grapes are grown in predominantly clay soils, in close proximity to a forest of Douglas Fir trees, which are thought to contribute to the unique flavor profile of the wines. These are made with extra attention to detail using classical winemaking styles. The three main wines produced by Cain Five, all Cabernet Sauvignon blends, are Cain Cuvée, Cain Five and Cain Concept.  Read less

This is a ruggedly tannic youngster with more than its share of earth and leather Luckily, there's enough currant and blackberry fruit to hold interest, but the offsetting flavors make it a dicey wine for most Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Cabernet
