Casa Piena 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon
94 Robert Parker
Former GM of the San Francisco 49ers, Carmen Policy, and his wife Gail have called upon Winemaker Thomas Brown and Vineyard Manager Jim Barbour to capture the essence of their Yountville Estate.
Their estate vineyard is meticulously cared for with a passionate commitment to growing 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and exhibits profound depth and character. They produce two estate Cabernets; 'Our Gang' fondly named after their grand children is crafted in a younger drinking style, and the flagship Casa Piena, which is composed of specific barrels hand selected by Thomas Brown, and is deemed the very best of each particular vintage.
