The Taste of Terroir: 2006, 2008, 2010 & 2012
A Vertical Tasting between Mountain and Valley
with Wine-Grower Christopher Howell, Cain Vineyard and Winery
Terroir is one of those words that we all think we know. But when asked to define it – it isn’t always so easy.
Here’s your chance to taste Terroir in the glass with Wine-Grower Chris Howell, who will take you through four vintages comparing Mountain and Benchland in the Cain Five and Cain Concept. These two Napa Valley wines are perfectly comparable in that they’re both Cabernet Blends, both are vinified in the same way, receive the same élévage, and most importantly are blended with the same aesthetic: complexity, harmony, balance and finish. Cain Vineyard and Winery has been producing the Cain Five for over thirty years and Chris has been directing the production for more than 25 vintages, so this is a unique opportunity to get a deeper view into an iconic estate.
