James Suckling Review
Rated 97
Exotic aromas of dried fruit, flowers, bark, sandalwood and dried flowers. Pine cone, too. Full-bodied with wonderful, refined tannins with riper tannins that show softness and pretty length. Harmonious. Just a hint of chocolate. A beautiful 1970s vibe to this. 57% cabernet sauvignon, 15% merlot, 14% cabernet franc, 9% malbec and 5% petit verdot. Drinkable now, but even better in a few years.

Wine Tasting Notes
All you really need to know is that the Cain Five came from the Cain Vineyard: estate grown - estate bottled - harvested and vinified in 2016. If you know anything about this wine, you'll know that it is a Cabernet Blend of five varieties (hence, Cain Five), but the most important thing is that it grew in just one place: the Cain Vineyard. Five Varieties - One Vineyard. Simple. The 2016 Cain Five is a generous, dense, focused wine, with the sun-drenched herbal and savory notes of our wild mountain Cain Vineyard, and satisfying and mouth-filling on the palate. The 2016 Cain Five drinks beautifully today, and will continue to do so for twenty years.
