2005 Songbook Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, 3 bottles in Wood Box
This wine boasts extraordinary aromas with multiple layers soaring from the glass. Initial aromas reveal black cherry, orange zest, tiramisu and cardamom, off-set by nuances of vanilla. Give it an hour and new layers of raspberry, chocolate cake, jasmine and iris root delight the nose. A texture composed of rich, ultra fine tannins showcase a bounty of flavors ranging from cassis and tamarind sauce, to dusty earth, wet stone, and the plushest of black fruits. The wine finishes with richness and elegance, displaying its potential for great longevity.
