TASTING NOTES:

"Fresh and bright with lovely notes of vanilla and tangy berries. Smooth, balanced, and long, it’s a lovely wine from a consistently excellent winery"
James Suckling, 93 pts

 

WINEMAKER'S NOTES:

The 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon combines fruit from Flora Springs’ sustainably-farmed estate vineyards in St. Helena, Rutherford, and Oakville. The hand-harvested grapes were cold-soaked for several days to extract flavor and color prior to fermentation. Several lots underwent extended maceration to refine and soften the tannins, and all lots were aged in a combination of French (79%) and American (21%) oak barrels for 19 months prior to blending.

This is a rich and satisfying Cabernet with warm flavors of blackberry compote, cassis, vanilla crème, and mocha. A hint of wild chaparral is noticeable after several sips along with notes of sweet oak and espresso. The warm tones and juicy tannins give an overall impression of softness, but the wine is backed with a refreshing acidity that promises aging well into the next decade.

This Cabernet would make a wonderful companion for rare-cooked meats, classic cheese fondue, rosemary-braised lamb shanks, or beef carpaccio with wild arugula.

Blend: 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 3% Malbec, 1% Petit Verdot
