Cain Concept is an outstanding Cabernet blend from Napa' Spring Mountain producer of the venerable Cain Five and sourced from the same vineyards. Limited! 95 Points James Suckling": "Extremely floral and ripe with rosemary and dark fruit. Fresh fruit too, of course. Full body, round tannins and fruity and long finish. Reserved and refined. Wonderful clarity. Better in 2018 but why wait?" 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 2012 Cain Concept has a long life ahead of it. 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." 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc."

2/2021. Nice bold Cab (73%) from Napa Valley. Lingered on the palate and paired well with bone in filet at Hall’s Chophouse Columbia.

Deep and dark fruit from the outset with chocolate, coffee. Touch of acid then into a rich finish with a velvety mouth feel.
