Seamless and effusive, 2013 Songbook's heady aromas begin with spring flowers, wild mint, crème de cassis, and melted dark chocolate. As the wine unfolds, the perfume evolves with subtle notes of cinnamon, cardamom, coffee, and earthy pine forest floor. The seductive flavors lay out across the palate with crushed blackberry, wild boysenberry, and blood orange leading the way. A long crescendo of black licorice envelops the finish with accent notes of graphite and talc, representative of the David Abreu-farmed Thorevilos and Madrona Ranch vineyards that were the source of this amazing fruit.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Songbook is 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 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 twenty-one months of élevage in French oak barrels, 95% of which were new. The final blend is composed of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot.
