Casa Piena Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2008, 1.5L (WA95, WS94) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Casa Piena Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

1.5L

Vintage: 2008
Region: US
Appellation: Napa

WA95, WS94
Rated 95 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `Slightly better (which is no surprise, since it appears to be an impressive work in progress) is the 2008 Casa Piena. Production in this vintage is slightly higher as well. This wine displays similar character, with more unsmoked cigar tobacco intermixed with creme de cassis, camphor, graphite, and some subtle earthiness. Opaque ruby/purple, medium to full-bodied, layered, and opulent, this is a beauty as well, but slightly richer and potentially more complex than the brilliant 2007. This is an impressive newcomer, so take note!` -- Robert Parker in the Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from the Wine Advocate: `A new project, and an impressive one at that, Casa Piena is owned by former lawyer and football executive for the San Francisco 49ers, Carmen Policy. None other than Thomas Brown is the winemaker at this facility, which is situated at the crossroads of Silverado Trail and the Yountville Crossroad, a pretty classy neighborhood, considering that Cliff Lede and Kapcsandy are also nearby. The wine at Casa Piena is aged 20 months in 80% new French oak casks and is virtually 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.`
