Casa Piena Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
The 2010 represents a giant leap forward qualitatively for Casa Piena. Dialing in the perfect yield for the
season while reacting early to the cool summer conditions allowed us to achieve true ripeness in
a challenging year. The vintage valley w
ide is framed by acidity and that only adds to the traditional
elegance of the Casa Piena site. The best wines from the property feature balance in several areas:
fruit vs. tannin vs. acidity, savory vs. fruity elements, palate depth vs. breadth and pala
te weight/power vs. some of the more ethereal elements that contribute complexity to great wines.
Every year what dictates this achievement changes. The Casa Piena wines have always been driven
by the site and this might be the purest expression yet.
