Cain Five is one of the most classically-built wines made in the Napa Valley. The emphasis each year is on structure and expressing the terroir of Spring Mountain. In a vintage like 2012, this wine boastsĀ an expansive bouquet. Deep bass notes of black currant and hot rocks emerge. Toasty bread and bay laurel follow. This is only an infant and will provide enjoyment for 20 to 30 years.

 

“Love the aromas of blackberries, black olives, stones and tree bark. Forest floor too. Full body with powerful, polished tannins and a long, long finish. Very fine. Latour style of Bordeaux. Muscular.”
