2003 Cain Five
Napa Valley

Those who know Cain know that our mantra is “complexity, balance, finish.” Ripeness goes without saying, but ripeness, per se, is not the goal, and over-ripeness would be our p ... morearticular bête noire. Like 2002, 2003 was warm and made for an early harvest, but, mercifully, it was not quite as hot as 2002. We were able to bring in grapes that were fresh, rich, and complex—the perfect fruit from which to develop the signature balance of Cain Five.

The 2003 is a classic Cain Five, reminiscent of 1992, 1993, 1995, and 1996. Ripe and balanced, with floral notes, the wine is a bit tighter and slightly less evolved than the 2002—which suggests that our 2003 Cain Five will age extremely well. It will drink well now and in the next few years, and it should also show well 10 to 15 years from now. This is a firmly structured wine—the nose is discretely subtle, a very pure cassis is hiding in the background (which bodes well)—it sings a quiet, clear note all the way through to the end. The full, sweet entry fills out to a satisfying mid-palate, leading to a long, smooth finish.

Our winemaking is simple: We believe that red wine is a partial extraction of the grape. Our goal

2004 Cain Concept - The Benchland
Napa Valley

The core of our Cain Concept—The Benchland is Cabernet Sauvignon from the classical “benchlands” of the Napa Valley. These are the alluvial-fan benches that form at the foot ... moreof the mountains lining the edges of the valley floor. We think that the Cabernet Sauvignon grown on the eastern and western benches of Oakville, Rutherford, and St. Helena have defined the greatness of the Napa Valley for more than 100 years.

Cabernet Sauvignon 61%, Merlot 16%, Cabernet Franc 12%, Petit Verdot 11%

Cain Cuvée
Napa Valley

After more than fifteen years of development, Cain Cuvée has come of age! We have created a refreshing, vibrant cabernet blend that pleases the palate with plenty of complexity to ... more stimulate the senses.

Cuvée is the most eclectic of our three blends – not limited to a particular varietal formula. In this release, Merlot is present in the largest proportion while, collectively, the two Cabernets make up a slight majority. Finally, a dollop of Petit Verdot completes the blend. In the NV4, the 2004 vintage contributes the core, while the 2003 vintage adds additional finesse, polish, and complexity.

66% 2004, 34% 2003

45% Merlot, 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot
