Winemaker's Notes

(From 2001 Vintage) Color: dark. You can just see through it—barely. Hint of evolution. Nose: signature anise and orange peel form the top notes over a mid-range of oak and spice with a base of roasted meat. Palate: sweet entry, fully structured body, flows to balanced, slightly “grippy,” rustic tannins. Exhibits a pleasingly refined mouth feel and a long finish.

    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.

    (From 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.
