Pleasant purple color and nose. Not overpowering. Soft but lingering finish. Very enjoyable but safe. Nothing stands out. Would be a crowd pleaser at a party but didn’t blow me away.

Tannic, hard. Perhaps ageworthy. Not super ripe, which I like.

Confirmation that Cain is one of my all time favorite consistent Napa wines. Pure artistry and complexity without the fatty fruit.

Coffee and blueberry with a hint of smoke. Lots of tannin. Sea salt notes on the nose and front palette. Chocolate notes on the finish.
