    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

Cain Five is named for the 5 traditional varieties that go into a Bordeaux blend. The estate vineyard sits on top of Spring Mountain, where Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc are grown. Notes of black current and cherry epitomize this wine.

Wine Tasting NotesThe 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, we expect this wine to age gracefully over the next ten years.
