Cain Concept 2012 – The Benchland – Napa Valley

(73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc) The nose is fruity, aromatic and incisive. It reveals fine notes of wild flowers, cassis and blackberry associated with fine hints of Sichuan pepper, vegetal hints as well as discreet touches of jammy raspberry, discreet hints of spice and a fine touch of cinnamon. The palate is fruity, fleshy, fresh, well structured and offers a small acidity, fat, a good volume, suavity as well as a beautiful silky matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of cassis, blackberry and fine hints of raspberry / fresh red berries associated with (very) discreet hints of Zan / cola as well as discreet touches of tobacco and spices (discreet). Tannins are fine and integrated. Good length and persistence with notes of cola / zan, ripe black fruit and a (very) slight hint of blackberry jam.
