If you have enjoyed our prior “vintages” of Cain Cuvée, you will love the NV09. Those of you who have followed our Cain Cuvée know that it is not your typical Napa red wine; no big, inky, oaky blockbuster here. Our Cuvée is intended to sit lightly, refreshingly (dare I write, lovingly?) on your palate. There is all the fruit that you could want, but the Cain Cuvée is not fruit juice. It is, most assuredly, fine wine for serious wine-lovers who value complexity, balance and finish. The Cain Cuvée is for those who know that wine doesn’t have to be big to be good.
