Food Pairings for Cain Vineyard & Winery Cain Concept
"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. These are the alluvial fan benches that form at the foot of the mountains lining the edges of the valley floor. We think that the Cabernet Sauvignon grown on the eastern and western benches of Oakville, Rutherford, and St. Helena have defined the greatness of the Napa Valley for more than 100 years. This makes up about half of the blend." -Winery
