2014 Songbook Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, 6 pack in Wood Box
2014 Songbook is a fascinating combination of transcendent perfume and multitudinous flavors derived from these two celebrated vineyards. They intertwine in a way that makes a wine so complex that it defies traditional descriptions of Cabernet-based wines from Napa Valley. The volcanic soils of the Thorevilos Vineyard bring talc, melted dark chocolate, crème de cacao, and a core of red and black licorice aromas. The Madrona Cabernet Franc brings notes of fresh tobacco, coastal sage, pebbly rock, and dried berry. As the aromas are echoed in the flavors, essence of pine forest floor and espresso bean build seamlessly on a richly textured palate. A long crescendo of black licorice envelops the finish with accent notes of graphite and violets.
