Cain Five 2013 – Napa

The nose is fruity and offers a small concentration, a slight intensity as well as a small power. It reveals notes of cassis, wild berries and local vegetation associated with small notes of crushed blackberry, Sichuan pepper, violet / tarweed (Madia), slight hints of spices as well as discreet hints of pine, camphor, grilled oak and tonka bean. The palate is juicy, fruity, elegant, well-balanced, racy, well-built and offers a beautiful definition, a beautiful suavity, precision, a beautiful finesse of the grain as well as a small tension. On the palate this wine expresses notes of crunchy / juicy cassis and black cherry associated with slight touches of juicy blackberry, dark chocolate, licorice / colas, black olive as well as a very discreet hint of grove, sap / pine and an imperceptible hint of tarweed. There is a very discreet hint of coffee on the finish / persistence. There are a very discreet hint of grove and a very discreet hint of racy minerality on the aftertaste.
