Details

“The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon from Casa Piena is just as impressive as it has always been. Rich, ample and powerful, the 2013 exudes class. Sweet tobacco, herbs, menthol and licorice wrap around a core of intense red fruit. The flavors are bright, vibrant and intense throughout, but my sense is that the 2014 is still improving. This is a terrific showing from Casa Piena and winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown.” - Antonio Galloni, Vinous

Winemaker Notes
“The 2013 Casa Piena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is made up of the best barrels of clones 337, 341 and clone 7. In the glass the wine has a nearly opaque deep purple hue. The real intrigue comes in the form of the nuanced, deeply layered aromatics. Notes both light and dark emanate towards you: citrus peel, lavender, star anise, cedar bark, crushed blackberries, sandalwood and kirsch liqueur. The palate experience is definitively marked by a pronounced structure and bright high tones, which is the calling card for a wine that had plenty of skin contact during fermentation. Dark notes of cassis, baking chocolate, plum compote, tobacco leaf and oolong tea are neatly layered amidst an upright and bright acid backbone. Casa Piena is drinking beautifully now. However, 7+ years in the cellar will allow these wines to age extremely graciously plus show their true colors once all the structural components integrate and flesh out.” - Thomas Brown
