    CAIN VINEYARD & WINERY is dedicated to our signature Cabernet blend, Cain Five. Composed of the five classic varieties of the Cabernet/Bordeaux family, Cain Five epitomizes the benefits of blending to achieve a complex wine, supple and rich of texture, combining a full, firm structure with a long and subtle finish.

    (1997 Vintage) 87% Cabernet Sauvignon; 11% Cabernet Franc; 1% Petit Verdot; 1% Malbec. Perhaps more properly labeled as "Four" rather than "Five" in its present version, Cain's prestige cuvee is a study in contrasts and earns high marks for its deep fruit, lavish oak and invitingly fleshy palatal feel. It is less laudable, however, for its persistent old bark and saddle-leather qualities, and it gets pushed just wide of recommendation by its abrupt, overtly drying finish.
