Winemaker's Notes:

The 2004 Cain Five epitomizes the character of the Cain Vineyard: freshness and vibrancy are the keys. Aromas of citrus and Douglas-fir overlay the black currant and black cherry of our mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate is juicy, sweet, and mouth-watering. As always, we blend to achieve balance and continuity on the palate, followed by a long finish. While this wine drinks beautifully today, I expect the 2004 to age gracefully over the next ten years.

About Cain Vineyard and Winery:

The Cain Vineyard site is truly spectacular, cradled in a bowl overlooking St. Helena from the top of the Spring Mountain District. In 1980, Joyce and Jerry Cain purchased part of the McCormick Ranch, a homestead dating back to the 1840's. The Cains were in search of a unique mountain property where they could realize their dream of planting the five classical Bordeaux varietals from which to draw one ideally structured wine, which would result as a blend of all five varieties. Jim and Nancy Meadlock joined the Cains in 1986, and in 1991 they purchased full ownership. The first Cain Five, the 1985 vintage was released in 1989. Cain produces four wines: Cain Five, Cain Cuvee, Cain Musque and Cain Concept.
