Cain Five 2012
14 September 2016

“Love the aromas of blackberries, black olives, stones and tree bark. Forest floor too. Full body with powerful, polished tannins and a long, long finish. Very fine. Latour style of Bordeaux. Muscular. Not on the market until 2016 or 2017. Better in 2019.” 97 Points, James Suckling

In actual fact you can be pretty sure Chris Howell will wish we hadn’t used the above reference to Latour style. All they aim to make are Cain style wines; wines that tell the story of a given vintage in the very particular spot that is the Cain Five vineyard, set high up on Spring Mountain in the Napa Valley. The reference to Latour presumably alludes to the combination of texture, minerality and dark savoury fruit that Cain achieves. Comparisons to First Growths aside, this is one of the most interesting wines from Napa, regularly producing some of the region’s most complex and intelligent expressions of the Bordeaux blend.    Read More
