2018 Flora Springs Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, USA (750ml)
Fruit sourced from two vineyards—one in Rutherford and one in Oakville—contributes prestigious terroir to this red, which aged 18 months in 70% French and 30% American oak. Notes of cigar leaf, black pepper, and bittersweet dark chocolate lead the way on the palate as black fruit weaves throughout with hints of cola and black coffee. The dry, dusty finish has a cedar twist - Tasting Panel, 92 pts
Our 2018 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon combines fruit from two outstanding, sustainably-farmed vineyard sources: the Komes Vineyard in Rutherford and our Crossroads Vineyard in 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 soften the tannins, and all lots were aged in a combination of French (70%) and American (30%) oak barrels for 18 months prior to blending.
Fragrant, fruit-driven aromas of black cherry, purple plum and currant introduce this plush, polished Cabernet, with similar flavors joined by notes of vanilla, dark chocolate, cola and licorice. The wine is lithe and velvety on the palate, with fine, well-integrated tannins. A bright streak of acidity keeps the mouth feel fresh and balanced, with a flourish of orange peel and toast on the finish. This classic Napa Cabernet begs for a nice grilled T-Bone steak, roast leg of lamb with rosemary and black olives, or a mixed vegetable ragout on a bed of polenta
