Casa Piena-Cabernet Sauvignon-"Estate Grown" Napa Valley-2010

Casa Piena
Cabernet Sauvignon
"Estate Grown" Napa Valley
2010

$155.00

Gail and Carmen Policy's 10 acre vineyard on the Silverado Trail, near Yountville Cross Road, is as pretty as it gets. The vineyard is planted all to Cabernet Sauvignon. Thomas Rivers Brown has been their winemaker since their first vintage in 2006. We sold the 2008 Casa Piena very successfully...it too was a great wine. This 2010 is a dream, and just getting better with time in the bottle. Classic Napa Cab fruit profile of black cherries, blackberries, black and red currants and pomegranate. Then the non-fruit flavors kick in: black licorice, truffle, espresso and sweet tobacco. The texture is what really sets the wine apart...so very rich and expansive on the finish yet smooth as can be. This wine speaks to me, and think it will do the same to you. Worth the money when compared to its peers.

"Intense, full-bodied, powerful, concentrated...opaque purple color, sweet nose of licorice, scorched earth, blackberries and black currants... full-bodied, powerful wine with the wood, alcohol, tannin and acidity well-integrated. Juicy and multidimensional with a layered mouthfeel...already approachable and is capable of lasting  25 or more years." Robert Parker, 10/2013
