Cain Five 2003

SKU 579


Ripe and balanced, with floral notes, the wine is a bit tighter and slightly less evolved than the 2002-which suggests that our 2003 Cain Five will age extremely well. It will drink well now and in the next few years. This is a firmly structured wine-the nose is discretely subtle, a very pure cassis is hiding in the background (which bodes well)-it sings a quiet, clear note all the way through to the end. The full, sweet entry fills out to a satisfying mid-palate, leading to a long, smooth finish.
