“ Terrific Value… Sleeper of the Vintage…possesses abundant black currant and black cherry fruit with hints of white chocolate and espresso.” Robert Parker.
Winemaker Notes Year after year this wine is a favorite among our loyal fans - it exhibits all of the characteristics of a classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Ripe flavors of black cherry and cocoa envelop the front of the mouth and move across the palate into a soft lingering finish. Each vintage we look to reveal the true character of our estate vineyards while using oak as an undertone, highlighting the inherent flavors.
Technical notes
The grapes were harvested from estate vineyards in St. Helena, Rutherford and Oakville. Immediately following primary fermentation, the must from a few tanks was pressed off its skins to maintain the bright, fruit forward elements of the variety. The remainder was left on its skins for an extended period of time to lend depth and complexity. The wine aged for 22 months in French (57%) and American (43%) oak barrels.

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.
