Winemaker Thomas Brown’s Tasting Note:
2006 Casa Piena Cabernet Sauvignon, Estate, Yountville, Napa Valley
The aroma of the wine greets you before your nose even makes it to the glass. Scents of rose petals, licorice, sweet tobacco leaf and blue and purple fruits mark the effusive nose. The vineyard’s location on the Silverado Trail side of Yountville gives the wine a more elegant palate filled with notes of melted chocolate, espresso roast, lavender, creosote and complemented by a rich minerality that provides backbone and structure. The tannins are evident early with the wine providing a firmer experience than we believed the site would suggest. This wine definitely drinks better after an hour or so in decanter and is in no danger of fading for a decade in the cellar.
