Aromas of black plum, cassis, and candied violets dance together with an intense perfume of sandalwood, sage and pine in a performance that intrigues the senses.  A silky, supple entry segues into a luscious, juicy mid-palate and a finale of talc minerality, expressive of Thorevilos Cabernet grown in tufa soils.  The Cabernet Franc from Madrona Ranch lends aromatic lift, structure, and power to the blend, while Thorevilos Merlot adds finesse. This wine is a textural experience of dark exotic fruit harmonized with sueded, graphite minerality, as appealing as wearing your favorite cashmere sweater in front of a cozy fireplace. Enjoy the evolution in your glass.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The 2011 Songbook was sourced from acclaimed viticulturist David Abreu’s personal properties Thorevilos Vineyard and Madrona Ranch. These vineyards produce grapes of exceptional character resulting from proprietary clones, extremely low yields, and meticulous farming. The result is a winemaker’s dream.
Production Notes
Grapes were hand-picked into small lug bins in the darkness of the early morning hours, and immediately subjected to rigorous selection with our optical sorter and a berry-by-berry hand sorting process. The fruit was gently gravity-delivered to tank by our unique crane system, retaining the integrity of whole berries. Cold soaks lasted four to six days, and fermentations were managed by a combination of délestage and pumpovers. Extended maceration for four weeks fine-tuned our tannin profiles and allowed us to perfect mouth feel and complexity. This wine underwent eighteen months of élevage in new French oak.
