Product details

The Cain Five tastes like nothing else—not because of us but because of where it grows. The main thing is that we seek to capture the originality of the vineyard and not to cover it up with winemaking style. So, we strive to choose the moment of harvest for each facet of the vineyard: neither too soon, nor too late. We allow the grapes to ferment with their native yeast and we use the barrel not for wood flavor but for a gentle élévage. With patience, if one pays attention and doesn’t push too hard, it all comes together.

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.
