James Suckling Review
A wine with chocolate, herb and currant character. Medium to full body and soft and velvety tannins. Juicy finish. Showing lovely balance and freshness. Savory. Tobacco undertones. Drink now.
Wine Tasting Notes
The 2006 vintage gave us a beautiful wine. It strikes just the right balance between ripeness and freshness. You'll recognise the sweetness and comfort of a typically warm Napa vintage, yet it is still tightly wound around a solid core. We find the herbal and floral notes that are the signature of the Cain Vineyard, and now with age, we find tobacco and spice. The 2006 Cain Five, delicious today, demonstrates just how well the Cain Five can age. It has a very long life ahead.
