With Merlot at the forefront, the NV16 is the perfect California answer to a lighter style right bank Bordeaux red. Fresh on its feet, it packs the perfect balance of subtle herbal notes, red and black currant, bright acidity, moderate oak influence and moderate tannins. Drinkable now, it will hold quite well if cellared for a few years as well. Producer Notes: The Cain Cuvée is our most creative endeavor. It’s about the style of Cain and our vision of what classical red wine can be. Drawing from specific vineyards, both mountain and valley, as well as two harvests, we strive to compose a wine of aromatic complexity that is truly silky and sits lightly and refreshingly on the palate. If we have succeeded, the wine will dance on your tongue!
