Cain Five 2006
The 2006 Cain Five has the lowest alcohol we've had in many years: 14.1%. Still, it is a warm, plump, plush wine. It has a nice mouth-filling texture-not exactly silky, but "This wine talks to you." But, I would add, you have to listen. It is a quiet wine. It doesn't say, "Take me now," although you can. The nose is subtle and roasted. It speaks of a warm sun and ripe fruit-with no hint of overripe dried fruit, or "jamminess." The palate tells the same story with its full, plush tannins that slip right down without grabbing at the back of your throat.
