Flora Springs Trilogy 2003
2003 was a great year for Cabernet Sauvignon - as a result, the 2003 vintage of our acclaimed Bordeaux blend Trilogy has a higher percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon than previous vintages.
The oak and cherry nose moves into strong Cabernet flavors of black cherry, cassis and tea. These characteristics are accented by hints of raspberry from the Merlot, tobacco from the Cabernet Franc, plum from the Petit Verdot and a ruby richness from the Malbec, resulting in outstanding wine that has a strong tannin structure that will allow it to age gracefully for the next several years.
This gutsy wine has all the elegance that Trilogy is known for as well as the added benefit of full fruit flavor and body that makes it a pleasure to drink.
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.
