Flora Springs Trilogy 2016
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 2016 this iconic wine brings together Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Malbec grown in St. Helena, Rutherford and Oakville. A spectacular vintage yielded a deep, full-bodied red with dense flavors of black cherry and crème de cassis layered with dark chocolate, espresso bean, hints of licorice and wild chaparral. Warm and generous on the palate, the wine’s time in both French and American oak adds a spicy vanilla character to the mix, while the velvety tannins bring it to a long and satisfying finish. If you’re a steak lover, you can’t go wrong enjoying this Cabernet-dominated blend with a generously-peppered rib eye hot off the grill. It also works nicely with rosemary-sprinkled lamb chops or creamy polenta with a dusting of Parmesan cheese.
