A blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot.
Flora Springs has built its legacy on beautiful and complex wines that
can be enjoyed either as young and vibrant or as cellared and graceful.
The 2006 exhibits all the classic Trilogy attributes with a lovely cassis and
cherry bouquet, as well as huge black fruit flavors that envelop the palate.
Each varietal is vital to the outcome - the Cabernet exhibits black cherry
and dark cocoa character, while the Merlot carries these flavors to the
back of the palate where the Cabernet Franc adds notes of coffee and
toffee to the finish. Unrelenting with power and grace, the 2006 Trilogy,
our 22nd vintage, beautifully marries the complexity and elegance of our
earlier vintages with the sheer bravado of our favorites from the late 90's.
"The outstanding 2006 Trilogy (73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot) is a large production cuvee of 6,500 cases. Revealing lots of roasted herb, cedar, black currant, and sweet cherry notes, an endearing, medium to full-bodied texture, exceptional elegance, purity, and length, stunning balance, and ripe tannins (no easy task in a vintage such as 2006), it should drink well for 10-15 years.
One of the most impressive portfolios from Flora Springs that I have tasted has emerged from their extensive vineyard holdings. Flora Springs' single vineyard offerings are all 100% Cabernet Sauvignon with somewhat limited availability production ranges from 370-400 cases of each."
