CAIN FIVE 2008 PROPRIETARY RED ESTATE SPRING MOUNTAIN DISTRICT 750mL

We’d love to escort you, valued reader, through the Cain property.....

Talk about dramatic terrain! The site is truly spectacular, cradled in a bowl overlooking St. Helena from the top of the Spring Mountain District. Dramatic terraces have been cut into the steep hillsides facing north, south, east, and west. As you’ve probably heard, mountain vineyards are unique. The soils are thinner, and the vines yield less fruit. The sun shines longer and with greater intensity. All of these factors combine to produce a concentrated wine of great character. Many wine mavins consider the Spring Mountain District to be the pinnacle when it comes to mountain reds: intensely flavored yet softer with less acidity and more approachability when young.

Cain focuses solely on three reds: Cain Five, Cain Concept, and Cain Cuvee - “The Five” being the heart and soul of production and each release anxiously awaited. Each separate vineyard parcel (of which there are dozens) is picked at the optimum moment, and each lot is vinified separately and finishes its fermentation in the barrel. Following the careful evaluation of each lot, trial blends are prepared and, after many tastings, the final blend is made in the spring following the harvest.

Aromas of black currant and black cherry emerge from the Cabernet component. The palate is juicy, sweet and mouthwatering. The tannins are gentle, the finish long, the harmony is exemplary. Cellar it for 10-15 years or just wallow in it now. It’s that good.
