Winemaker Notes

Flora Springs’ 2016 Sauvignon Blanc offers a bright yet expansive mouthfeel with ¬flavors of grapefruit, pear, nectarine and honeydew melon alongside aromatic notes of lychee and orange blossom. Hints of graham cracker and brown spice join an appealing, luxurious note of creaminess. This is a superbly balanced wine, broadly textured yet crisp with a smooth, spicy finish.

Connoisseurs' Guide
If a little reluctant on first nosing, this precise, very keenly focused youngster needs no more than a few moments of airing before showing itself to be a Sauvignon Blanc of considerable layering and depth, and its aromatic teases are an enticing prelude to a refined and wonderfully well-balanced wine on the palate. It is as lively as it is polished and tastes of melons, minerals, citrus and touches of fresh grass, and it exhibits altogether remarkable staying power and length. It is delicious right now, but experience teaches that serious Sauvignon Blanc can age famously for years, and this is one to bet on with abandon.

COMPOSITION: Since the early 1980s, Flora Springs has become a real player amongst Napa Valley's finest Sauvignon Blancs and Cabernet Sauvignons. I was there in the beginning and quickly realized how important this winery was going to be. The 2016 Flora Springs Sauvignon Blanc is a top performer proving that my time was spent well. TASTING NOTES: This wine made from a combination of the Soliloquy and Musque clones does an excellent job in focusing on the grape variety's character. Its aromas and flavors of ripe melon, core fruit, and citrus should pair it well with bacon-wrapped grilled oysters. (Tasted: April 9, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Spectator
The melon, peach and apricot flavors are ripe and fleshy, with ginger and lemon meringue accents set on a creamy texture. Refreshing acidity emerges on the finish. Drink now.

Flora Springs is a family endeavor that epitomizes hard work, dedication and teamwork . The vitality of this family is obvious as they set about the task of growing great grapes and making absolutely delicious wine.

It all began over 20 years ago, when Jerry and Flora Komes bought the first vineyard - a vineyard with lots of history, great soils and two ghost wineries. Their retirement project became a lifetime passion for son John Komes and daughter Julie Garvey and their families. John quickly talked the family (including another brother Mike Komes) into making wine. Julie worked side by side with John as the first two years they made the wines. Julie’s husband Pat Garvey took over the vineyard side of things. In 1980, Ken Deis was hired as winemaker and he has been part of the family ever since.

Winemaker Ken Deis makes use of every tool at his disposal. First of all, he trusts his senses: The feel of the berry in his fingers, the taste of the fruit and then the wine, the smells during fermentation. A winemaker needs to understand the source of his fruit and Ken has worked closely with vineyard manager Pat Garvey for more than 20 years so that they can anticipate the challenges that each vintage brings. Ken has also adopted the same curiosity that the entire Komes-Garvey family has and it has paid off royally in the quality of his wines.

One of the world's most highly regarded regions for wine production as well as tourism, the Napa Valley was responsible for bringing worldwide recognition to California winemaking. In the 1960s, a few key wine families settled the area and hedged their bets on the valley's world-class winemaking potential—and they were right.

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980s, when producers scooped up vineyard lands and planted vines throughout the county. A number of wineries emerged, and today Napa is home to hundreds of producers ranging from boutique to corporate. Cabernet Sauvignon is definitely the grape of choice here, with many winemakers also focusing on Bordeaux blends. Napa whites are usually Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that claim specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil. Farthest south and coolest from the influence of the San Pablo Bay is Carneros, followed by Coombsville to its northeast and then Yountville, Oakville and Rutherford. Above those are the warm St. Helena and the valley's newest and hottest AVA, Calistoga. These areas follow the valley floor and are known generally for creating rich, dense, complex and smooth reds with good aging potential. The mountain sub appellations, nestled on the slopes overlooking the valley AVAs, include Stags Leap District, Atlas Peak, Chiles Valley (farther east), Howell Mountain, Mt. Veeder, Spring Mountain District and Diamond Mountain District. Wines from the mountain regions are often more structured and firm, benefiting from a lot of time in the bottle to evolve and soften.
