James Suckling Review
Rated 96
This is really firm and long with a solid core of tannins, earthy fruit and firmness. Medium to full body. Serious structure and length. Juicy and savory. The tension and form to this is beautiful. Classic, traditional Napa. 45% cabernet sauvignon, 26% merlot, 21% cabernet franc, 5% malbec and 3% petit verdot. Drinkable now, but better in 2024.

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 2017. 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 2017 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 2017 Cain Five drinks beautifully today, and will continue to do so for twenty years.
