Product Description

"Perched on the bench of the Mayacamas in the far northwest corner of the Rutherford appellation, the location of the Flora Springs Estate is enviable. In 1984, we set out to make the best wine possible by hand-selecting the highest quality lots from our estate vineyards. Using a blend of three Bordeaux varietals - Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet and Franc - we created Trilogy, one of the original Meritage wines.

Now a Napa Valley benchmark, Trilogy represents meticulous sustainable and organic farming practices, along with the evolution of a wine style created by the Komes and Garvey families. Over twenty years of Trilogy later, the goal remains the same - to handcraft the finest wine possible from the Flora Springs Estate." - Winery Notes

Flora Springs "Trilogy" Red Blend 2008 Reviews

"Exhibits a beautiful deep ruby/purple color along with sweet blueberry, black raspberry and black currant fruit intermixed with some floral notes, well-integrated oak and spice, medium to full body and silky tannins.  Already complex and delicious, this blend should continue to drink well for 10-15 years." - 91, Wine Advocate
"A flashy, classy wine grown in the estate vineyard in the benchlands and hills above Rutherford. Shows lots of sweet, ripe cherry fruit and toasty oak, but enough of an acid-tannin structure to dry it out for balance. Should hold and develop over the next 6-8 years." - 94, Wine Enthusiast

Flora Springs "Trilogy" Red Blend 2008 Tasting Notes

"It is hard for us to contain our excitement over the release of the 2008 Trilogy. It exhibits all of the classic Trilogy attributes with a lovely cassis and cherry bouquet as well as huge black fruit flavors that envelope the palate. However, the layers of flavor go beyond anything we have previously crafted and the mouth-feel is wonderfully lush and polished."  - Winemaker Notes
Blend: 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 2.5% Petit Verdot, 2.5% Malbec
