A friend and her family and my family got together this holiday season for a wine tasting. We agreed to the following:1) bring 1 bottle and 2) cost should be roughly $100ish. I brought the '02 Cain Five and she brought a '95 French red (don't remember the name). After breathing for appox. 30 minutes the Cain Five let it be known she came from a pedigree of wine elite and she was there to represent. The fruit on the nose was powerful. She showed early elegance and finesse. The first word everyone said after taking the first sip was, "Smooth." The texture was smooth and got Silky as the night passed. The soft tannins were noticeable from the first sip. The color was a deep crimson red, with a very long finish. I found myself chewing long after a sip was gone. As the night passed, subtle nuances kept emerging (i.e. chocolate, bacon) that were not evident earlier in the evening. This wine kept strutting her stuff to the very last drop with no sign of weariness. The two overriding characteristics were Power and Finesse. Next year, there will be 2 new criteria added: 1) the wine has to come from a vineyard that makes no more than a 1000 cases, and 2) RP or WS rating of at least 93. I can't wait.
