Tasting notes
We love the 2008 Cain Five, perhaps because of all the work we put into it, or perhaps because its elegance and well-defined structure seem almost effortless—the wine transcends our craft. Due to the low yields and relatively late ripening, the Cain Five is fresh and firmly structured, with potential for long and consistent aging. This marks the second vintage of our return to 100% Cain Vineyard—Estate Bottled, which means 100% of the grapes were grown in our Cain Vineyard. It is a worthy successor and perfect companion to the 2007. With its floral-herbal perfumed nose, and its juicy, mouth-wateringly vibrant palate, it could only be the Cain Vineyard.

Wine maker notes
2008 was dramatic for the vineyards of northern California. Between the frost, rain, fire, smoke, heat, and rain (again), one had to pay close attention at every stage during the growing season and during the winemaking. The result: while there is not very much of this wine, we think it has been worth the effort. For the best vineyard sites and the most meticulous winegrowing teams, 2008 will be seen as a classic year in the Napa Valley.
