Medium to deep mix of ruby and garnet red. Bigger punch on the nose than the 2006. A touch smoky, and dark fruits in the finish. Heavy tannins (8/10) and full bodied. Palate started off a bit tight but then had some black cherries and woody notes. Great structure and a bit of graphite in the dry long finish. Drink till 2030. (93+)

Not a pop and pour wine. 2 hour decant minimum. But very worth it. Special place in my heart for Cain. Living up to what I remember.

Almost Syrah-like. Not too dry but very full bodied. Lovely rich red blend. Excellent with red meat or even seafood.

After about 3 hours the tannins showed up a bit more. Not as much as expected. Tobacco spice with a mellow finish

Smokey and herbaceous nose. Dangerously easy to drink!

One of our favorite wines (and wineries), enjoyed Christmas 2016. 2012 vintage.

How can you go wrong with Cain five? I am happy to see the price drop, not a table wine, great with wild game.
