    Winemaker Notes

    Cain Cuvée (cue-vay means "blend") is a new style of Cabernet blend. This wine is not all about Big Oak and Inky, Drying Tannins. In our Cain Cuvée, we look for bright aromas to combine with a mouthwateringly fresh palate and a silky finish—just the thing to complement today's lighter and spicier dishes

    The NV9 Cain Cuvée is a blend not only of varieties but of vintages: the rich and round 1999 and the aromatic 1998. 1999 gave us some classically structured wines—an excellent backbone for the Cuvée—which harmonize beautifully with a few of the perfumed and silky wines that we had saved from the 1998 vintage to add more "lift" and complexity to the nose and finesse on the palate of the final blend. 1999 was a classical year—neither too late nor too early, yielding concentrated and well structured wines. In 1998, the fruit was comparatively late to ripen, and it ripened under cooler conditions, especially up in the mountains, resulting in more perfumed wines (cedar and berries), slightly less alcohol, and smoother, more elegant tannins.

    To blend the NV9 Cain Cuvée, we drew on fruit from the Cain Vineyard, others on Spring Mountain, Diamond Mountain, and especially from the Oakville and Rutherford Benches and the Conn Creek area, along the Silverado Trail. Naturally, we handle the fruit and the wine gently and are judicious in our use of new oak. The wine was bottled in the spring of 2001 after slightly more than a year in the barrel, then aged for another year in the bottle. As we write this (February 2002) after thirteen vintages of Cain Cuvée, we have found that all of them have aged gracefully. Although we like to drink them young, all of the Cain Cuvées—even the oldest—are still drinking well.

    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.
