Cain Vineyard Cain Five Spring Mountain District 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2006 is a warm, plump,plush wine. It has a nice mouth-filling texture—not exactly silky, but “This wine talks to you.” But,I would add, you have to listen. It is a quiet wine. It doesn’t say, “Take me now,” although you can.The nose is subtle and roasted. It speaks of a warm sun and ripe fruit—with no hint of overripe driedfruit, or “jamminess.”

    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
