2013 Flora Springs Trilogy

Estate: Flora Springs Family Estate
Region: Napa Valley, California, United States of America

Tasting Note:July 9, 2016

Our favorite of the 2013s sent to us. Deep and dark ruby red with high intensity. Coated in cinnamon, baking spices, and cassis on the nose. A little tight to start but the layers keep unfolding. Super thick and extracted. Heavy tannins (8/10) and full bodied. A ton of spices, creme de cassis and other dark berries. Like the nose, complex and layered with a super long finish. Love this bordeaux blend from Flora Springs and they killed it this vintage. We need to grab some of these for future reviews!

This is Flora Springs Flagship Cabernet-based blend, made up of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot and 6% Malbec. The fruit used in this bottling is exclusively from their family's estate vineyards in Rutherford (82%) and Oakville (18%). The 2013 vintage is aged in a mix of 60% new French oak barrels and 40% 1 year old French oak barrels for twenty-two months before bottling. Great value especially when you consider the cost of other Bordeaux blends coming out of Napa Valley.
