Tasting Notes

NV17 Cain Cuvée is quite simply the best Cain Cuvée to have come from our cellars. This wine belies our principles for Cain Cuvee: here is a wine that, although you can take seriously, you don’t have to. Our Cain Cuvée is simply intended for enjoyment without pretense, and should offer just enough eccentricities to be interesting. However, the NV17 sits quietly and calmly, right on the center of its pedestal, perfectly balanced, with perfect aplomb—seamless, refined, flowing and refreshing. Yes, you can take it seriously. It is beautiful.

CAIN CUVÉE: THE BLENDING OF BOTH VARIETIES AND VINTAGES

Cain Cuvée is the most eclectic of our blends because it is not only a blend of multiple varieties, but also of two vintages. Our Cain Cuvée is drawn mainly from different vineyards and it is intended to be an expression of lightness and to leave your palate refreshed. We’re also looking for complexity on the nose and balance on the palate. To achieve all of this, blending is a surprisingly useful and powerful method.
