2012 Casa Piena Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, California, USA

Layered notes of kirsch liqueur, rosemary, and nutmeg are found on the nose. The palate experience offers both structure and a complex fruit core that play off each other.


There are 15 units left in stock.


This wine expresses itself as a classic Cabernet Sauvignon that shows equal parts fruit and soil. With 5-7 years in the cellar it will evolve beautifully and offer delicate nuance over an even longer period.


This gem sized, 14-acre property offers three dramatic soil variations ranging from gravelly loam to a heavier sandy loam, with a unique and beneficial microclimate influenced by an adjacent knoll. Under the guidance of renowned vineyard manager Jim Barbour, Policy Vineyard has been planted to four elite clones of Cabernet Sauvignon. These four clones (7, 337, 341 and 6) were carefully selected and grown in individual blocks in order to offer our famous winemaker Thomas Brown a lush and complex palette of fruit from which to craft Casa Piena.
