Cain Vineyard & Winery Cain Concept The Benchland Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2010

$74.99

Cain Concept is an outstanding Cabernet blend from Napa' Spring Mountain producer of the venerable Cain Five and sourced from the same vineyards. Limited! In the “Cain Way,” small quantities of Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot are blended with Cabernet Sauvignon to build complexity, to add nuance, articulate the structure, and add length to the finish of the wine.  Fans of Silver Oak and Cakebread Cabernet will truly enjoy this wine. The 2010 Cain Concept has a long life ahead of it. Only now, in the summer of 2014, is it just coming around. It has a robe of deep, dark purple and the scent of cassis and cocoa. Its firm structure and refined tannins signal a long life. You can savor this wine over a long evening, or over two evenings and you’ll just begin to get to know it. Decant it and it will begin to tell its story." 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and just 1% Petit Verdot.

Rustic and young, needs some more time to mellow and hopefully meld together better. Still enjoyable, though.

Well balanced ... Even paired reasonably well with homemade yellow split pea soup and honey baked ham.

Impressed with this cab. Bottle age has served it well but I don’t see it getting any better from here. Drink ‘em up!

Very dry - nice notes of dark fruit. Great with short rib and would have again. On the pricier side
