Food Pairings for Cain Vineyard & Winery Cain Five
"If the Cain Five is utterly unique, distinctive in both aroma and taste, this can only reflect the Cain Vineyard, which gives birth to this wine and is both spectacular and idiosyncratic. Composed of the five classic varieties—Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec, and Petit Verdot—Cain Five epitomizes the benefits of blending to achieve a complex wine. It is supple and rich of texture, combining a full, firm structure with a long and subtle finish. 2008 was dramatic for the vineyards of northern California. Between the frost, rain, fi re, smoke, heat, and rain (again), one had to pay close attention at every stage during the growing season and during the wine- making. The result: while there is not very much of this wine, we think it has been worth the eff ort. For the best vineyard sites and the most meticulous winegrowing teams, 2008 will be seen as a classic year in the Napa Valley." -Winery
