Casa Piena is owned by former lawyer and football executive for the San Francisco 49ers, Carmen Policy. Winemaker is Thomas Brown. This is an intense, full-bodied, powerful, concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon. The color is opaque purple. It offers a sweet nose of licorice, scorched earth, blackberries and black currants. On the palate, juicy and multidimensional flavors of black licorice, blackberry, graphite, iron and mineral expand with a layered mouthfeel.
