2016 Cliff Lede Songbook Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, 3L in Wood Box
Our 2016 Songbook is a beautiful dance of sweet and savory fragrances and flavors. The fruit leads this vintage with ambrosial notes of fig paste, crushed wild raspberries, and black currants. Following, but no less important, are savory nori wrapper, fennel pollen, black truffle, and dried shiitakes. On the finish, cocoa powder, new tobacco, and sage leaf aromatics waft in the retro nasal cavities while layers of unctuous black licorice, wild raspberries, and white chocolate notes linger on the long finish.
