2016 CAIN Vineyards ‘Cain Five’ Red Blend Spring Mountain Napa Valley


6 in stock


If the Cain Five is utterly unique, distinctive in both aroma and taste, this can only reflect the Cain Vineyard, which gives birth to this wine and is both spectacular and idiosyncratic. Composed of the five classic varieties—Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec, and Petit Verdot—Cain Five epitomizes the benefits of blending to achieve a complex wine. It is supple and rich of texture, combining a full, firm structure with a long and subtle finish.

The Cain Wines are not submitted to the normal professional wine critics as they feel that they don’t require reviews in the traditional sense. They rely on distributors and retailers (like me) to hand sell their products and to emphasize the winery’s long standing reputation as a Napa Valley producer with the highest of standards. Wine Merchants West generally offers the wine critics scores and notes to help individuals understand the wines they wish to purchase. Professional scores will most often relay an interpretation of a wines history and quality. To this end I heavily rely on these critics since I can’t hand sell these products as I would in person. As I cannot offer scores on Cain wines, rest assured the Cain wine you are considering buying is of the highest quality as no corners are cut in production. | jp |
