"2007 will be recognized as the best year of the decade for Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Moderate yields, uniform ripening, a warm May, followed by a moderate summer and a warm September brought everything together. If there were a tiny quibble with this vintage it would be about ripeness, which was so easy to attain that it might be possible to overshoot. Fault this wine, perhaps, for too much generosity. Our winemaking program is simple and similar for all our wines: hand picking, gentle destemming, nativeyeast fermentation, thoughtful maceration, and manual pressing. The wines complete malolactic fermentation in the barrel, are blended in the spring following harvest, and are periodically racked from the barrel and returned back to the same barrels in the process known as elevage, which clarifies and matures the wine, smoothing off the edges and pulling it together. The 2007 Cain Concept - The Benchland was egg-white i ned and bottled without filtration in June of 2009, following 21 months in French oak (75% new)."
