Winemaker Notes

NV13 is the biggest, most dramatic Cain Cuvee to date. For this wine, the winery looks for early drinkability—and you will find it. You will also find nearly enough richness and substance to overwhelm the inherent complexity of this beautiful wine, but the balance succeeds. In the world of serious red wine, Cain Cuvee stands almost alone. All of Cain's wines are Cabernet blends, and yet the Cain Cuvee takes it one step further—it is also a blend of two vintages (60% 2012 and 40% 2013). At Cain, the whole point of blending is to create a synergy and complexity that transcends the sum of the parts. The winery has been blending two vintages for nearly twenty years, ever since 1998 when it composed its first blend, harmonizing the light and fresh 98s with the more full and lush 97s. That wine has aged wonderfully and is still beautiful today. The two vintages composing the NV13 Cain Cuvee are two of the richest, ripest, most powerful vintages in the past 30 years. Of these two, 2012 is the lusher and most immediately accessible, while the 2013 is more reserved and more structured. Together, they harmonize beautifully to create the biggest, richest Cain Cuvee to date. But don’t drink it too fast—you will need patience and attention to discover the complexity of this wine.Blend: 51% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot
