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 achieved and the mouth-feel is wonderfully
lush and polished. We credit the consistent organic and sustainable
farming practices of our vineyard team as well as the focus and direction
of our winemaker Paul Steinauer. Each varietal is vital to the outcome - the
Cabernet exhibits a black cherry and dark cocoa character, while the Merlot
carries these flavors towards an everlasting finish at back of the palate.
Malbec and Petit Verdot serve as our spices to the blend.
"One of the first proprietary Bordeaux blends made in Napa was Flora Springs’ Trilogy. The 2008 (79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 2.5% Petit Verdot and 2.5% Malbec) 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."
