The tannins are tea-like and smooth. Fruit characteristics of strawberry and cherry with a hint of raspberry and plum make this wine very enjoyable.

Review
""Appealing for its bright, focused currant, cranberry, red cherry, dusty berry and anise flavors, it firms up, shows concentration and depth, and finishes with a pretty burst of fruit. Drink now through 2008."" Rating: 88 POINTS Wine Spectator August 31, 2003

Producer
Founded in 1978 in the heart of Napa Valley, Flora Springs has been a family affair for more than three decades, developing an admirable record for producing high quality, region-specific wines. Now in their third generation of stewardship, the Komes and Garvey families own 650 acres of vineyards throughout five appellations in the Napa Valley – Carneros, Oakville, Rutherford, St. Helena and Pope Valley enabling them to maintain quality with estate grown, hand picked fruit. They select 20% of the finest fruit from each vintage for their own wines and sell the remaining 80% to neighboring wineries. From the beginning, as artisan farmers and winemakers, the family has employed sustainable vineyard practices. More recently they’ve converted 40% of their estate vineyards, which account for 90% of their red wines, to certified organic farming.
