Winemaker's Notes

In the "Cain Way," the winery blends small quantities of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot with Cabernet Sauvignon to build complexity, to add nuance, to articulate the structure, and to add length to the finish of the wine. The Franc gives a bit of lift to the nose, and the Merlot gives a bit of fat to the entry and mid-palate, while the Verdot adds backbone to the blend. We're happy with the 2004 Concept, and they look forward to tasting it for many years to come.
