Tasting notes
The unmistakable scent of the Cain Vineyard is of anise, raspberries with back-notes of wild herbs and roses. The palate flows smoothly and firmly from beginning to middle to end with a texture of washed silk. The delicate balance of the 2011 Cain Five is a revelation of what wine can be about. When so many wines have been “made” for maximum impact, at Cain we’ve been content to let the vineyard speak quietly. No need to shout when you have something to say. With all the noise these days about high alcohol wines, the 2011 Cain Five is a respectable (and honest) 13.1%, and we’re proud of it.

Wine maker notes
The 2011 vintage is not about power, but about a silky, flowing palate and a gentle, lingering finish. The wine is not opaque—it has a beautiful deep garnet hue. While we always say that our wines are intended for the table, here is a Cain Five you can enjoy on its own. You might wonder, “How in a difficult year, can the Cain Five be truly enjoyable?” Everyone knows that the best vineyards do well even in difficult vintages. 2011 was difficult for those noted for massive, over-the-top wines. It was a late year; grapes were ripening in October, and the first rains came with fruit still on the vine. But our grapes were just fine on the steep hillsides of the Cain Vineyard, where the yields are always low, the soils are thin, the rain runs downhill, and there’s usually a good breeze to dry the fruit.
