Winemaker Notes

Dark purple color. Opulent wild blueberry greets the nose and is accented by lavender and allspice. Silky tannins offer a counterbalance to a dense mouth-feel to ensure a persistent finish.

Critical Acclaim

RP 95
The Wine Advocate

The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Songbook (only 128 cases) is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot, all from David Abreu's personal vineyards of Thorevilos and Madrona Ranch. This wine is a potential superstar, with tremendous graphite notes intermixed with creme de cassis, blackberry, charcoal, white chocolate, and perhaps even a hint of espresso. It is deep, full-bodied, rich, but strikingly pure and even elegant in spite of its substantial flavors and size. This is a stunning Stags Leap wine to drink over the next 25+ years.

A source of Sonoma Cabernet that can rival its Napa Valley neighbors, the Alexander Valley is the hottest AVA in the county. This large and heavily planted appellation is only 25 miles from the coast, but it is relatively free of fog due to the sheltering effects of the mountain ranges in between. However, the Russian River, which runs through the valley, creates cool-climate pockets and soft, alluvial soil ideal for grape-growing.

In addition to Cabernet Sauvignon, which makes up over 50% of plantings, Merlot and other [Bordeaux] varieties as well as Zinfandel thrive here, all of which take on a bold and voluptuous personality. Ample, fleshy Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc dominate white wine production. Some old-vine plantings of Grenache have been discovered here, and more recent experiments with Sangiovese and [Barbera] show great promise.
