A lovely wine that i thought was going to be full, bold, and round and although it has those qualities it comes off against a mineral backdrop: like liking a slate rubbed with brambly fruit, a little watery, but full of dark floral, slightly chocolatey (?) and plump fruit as it passing to the finish. :)

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.

2005 gave us plenty of hang time to allow the grapes to ripen gently. The cool weather on Spring Mountain preserved the firmness of the tannins and the freshness of the aromas, and it gave us our most restrained wine since 1999. The 2005 Cain Five shows the emphasis we place on mouth feel: the texture of the tannins is extremely fine, yet distinctly present. The aromas are of fresh red cherries and exotic spices. The wine evolves very well in the open glass, which bodes well for the future. Today, you should decant the wine and sip it carefully. This wine will age gracefully for a long, long time.

Cain Vineyard & Winery is cradled in a spectacular bowl overlooking the Napa Valley from the crest of the Spring Mountain District. The Estate is planted with the five Bordeaux varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Each one goes into every vintage of Cain Five. Twenty different lots were separately vinified and carefully chosen for this 2005. Aged a 22 months in oak and bottled unfiltered. It shows a silky rich mouthfeel and intense fruit and spice flavors. Very Limited!

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.
