Deep red-ruby color. Slightly reduced aromas of smoky currant, coffee liqueur, minerals and smoked meat. Big, sweet and deep, with lovely acidity giving the fruit a penetrating quality. Has the strong extract to buffer its firm structure. Good ripe black fruit flavors. Finishes with very fine, mounting tannins and subtle persistence. Complex and claret-like. (ST)
The 1997 Cain Five, one of the finest wines Cain has yet produced, is a superb blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot, and 1% Malbec. This is a classy, rich, concentrated effort revealing copious quantities of black fruits intermixed with licorice, coffee, and vanillin. This wine is medium to full-bodied, with a velvety texture. This rich, elegant, intense, well-balanced, impressive red should drink well for 15+ years. (RP)
This predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon blend could actually be Cain Four this year, as there’s no Malbec in the blend. Large and taut, it displays tightly wrapped prune, toast, coffee and currant aromas. Possesses a handsome mouthfeel, with full tannins, tarry pine bark and a cocoa note on the palate and back end.
Rich and earthy, with a leathery, minerally streak running through a plush core of black cherry, currant, sage. (JL)
Drenched in a lovely deep colour, this Bordeaux blend (truly Napa Valley in style) is multi-layered with rich and intense fruit. Concentrated, lush but elegant. 18/20 points.
