2007 Vintage

Winemaker Thomas Brown’s Tasting Note: 

2007 Casa Piena Cabernet Sauvignon, Estate, Yountville, Napa Valley

The elegance that defines Casa Piena is certainly evident in the 2007 vintage, but it also contains a concentrated fruit quality that we weren’t sure was possible from this area. The fruit is darker in profile than the 2006, more purple/black than red/black, and much deeper at this point in the wine’s evolution. The soil driven elements are present but are masked by the layers of blueberries, blackberries and melted chocolate that the year gave us. This wine feels rounder than its predecessor and has in common with other great wines what we think sets them all apart, the ability to drink great young, middle-aged and old aged. We knew early on 2007 was something special and now here’s the realization of that first thought.
