Sourced from famed viticulturist David Abreu's personally-farmed properties, the 2012 Songbook offers alluring perfume with effusive, ethereal aromas of violets and crushed rose petal segue into exotic boysenberry, huckleberry, and blood orange fruits. Long, elegant, and seamless, the palate is supported structurally by beautiful, powdery tannins from the tufa soil in which the terraced Cabernet vines of the Thorevilos Vineyard reside.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
2012 Songbook was sourced from two of acclaimed viticulturist David Abreu’s personally-farmed properties: Thorevilos Vineyard, situated between the St. Helena and Howell Mountain AVAs, and Madrona Ranch, nestled in the foothills of the Mayacamas mountain range. 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
In the cool darkness of night, grapes were hand-picked into twenty-five pound bins to minimize crushing. By early morning, the grapes were subjected to rigorous selection by our three-tiered sorting process, which includes our cutting edge optical sorter and a slow, individual berry hand sort. The fruit was gently gravity-delivered to small tanks and wooden cuves by our unique crane system which kept the berries intact. Cold soaks lasted from five to eight days, and fermentations were managed through a combination of pump overs and délestage. Extended maceration of up to six weeks ensured exceptional extraction and fine-tuning of tannin profiles. This wine underwent eighteen months of élevage in French oak barrels, 90% of which were new. The final blend is composed of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, and 1% Cabernet Franc.
