Flora Springs Trilogy Red Wine
Trilogy is Flora Springs’ flagship wine, one that dates back to 1984 when our family decided to make the finest wine possible by selecting the highest quality wine lots culled from our estate vineyards in Napa Valley. Back then it was one of Napa Valley’s first proprietary red blends, and today this Bordeaux-style wine continues to be sourced from our own Komes-Garvey estate vineyards. In 2017 this iconic wine brings together Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Malbec grown in Oakville, Rutherford and St. Helena. The Cabernet Sauvignon dominates at 80% of the blend, yielding a deep purple-black wine that offers warm notes of black plum, black cherry and cassis layered with mocha, hints of tobacco, cola and wild herbs. The flavors are mouth coating and generous, but the wine retains a freshness due to lovely acidity and sleek tannins. The mix of French and American oak adds spice and notes of vanilla crème that linger on a satisfying finish. This is a beautiful Napa Cab, ideal with a NY strip steak or other favorite cut. Eggplant parmesan would also make a nice match, as would a slow-braised lamb or beef dish.
80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Petit Verdot, 3% Malbec
Wine Spectator- Ripe and open in feel, with lots of anise-infused blackberry and plum fruit backed by sweet spice and roasted apple wood flavors. Shows a slightly toothy edge through the finish, but the fruit has its pluses. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Best from 2021 through 2029.
Wine Enthusiast-This is made from 80% Cabernet Sauvignon with 17% Petit Verdot and 3% Malbec blended in, making for a soft, approachable and richly layered expression of full-bodied ripeness and dark, dense black fruit. Dust, clove and leather accent and complement.
James Suckling- A soft and fruity red with currants, chocolate and hints of toasted oak. Medium to full body. Round tannins and a flavorful finish. Nicely done for the vintage. 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Petit Verdot and 3% Malbec. Drink or hold.
