Winemaker Notes

Trilogy is Flora Springs’ flagship wine, one that dates back to 1984 when their family decided to make the finest wine possible by selecting the highest quality wine lots culled from our estate vineyards in Napa Valley. Back then it was one of Napa Valley’s first proprietary red blends, and today this Bordeaux-style wine continues to be sourced from our own Komes-Garvey estate vineyards. In 2016 this iconic wine brings together Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Malbec grown in St. Helena, Rutherford and Oakville. A spectacular vintage yielded a deep, full-bodied red with dense flavors of black cherry and crème de cassis layered with dark chocolate, espresso bean, hints of licorice and wild chaparral. Warm and generous on the palate, the wine’s time in both French and American oak adds a spicy vanilla character to the mix, while the velvety tannins bring it to a long and satisfying finish.

If you’re a steak lover, you can’t go wrong enjoying this Cabernet-dominated blend with a generously-peppered rib eye hot off the grill. It also works nicely with rosemary-sprinkled lamb chops or creamy polenta with a dusting of Parmesan cheese.

Blend: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, and 6% Malbec

Tasting Panel

Deep, dark ruby color; rich and intense with concentrated flavors of ripe plum, spice, and subtle hints of herbs and earth. Excellent now, it’ll be a knockout in a few years.

COMMENTARY: The Flora Springs Trilogy, first produced in 1984, is one of Napa Valley's best examples of a red blend made from Bordeaux grape varieties. The 2016 vintage is one of their top efforts. TASTING NOTES: This wine is elegant. Its aromas and flavors range from red to black fruits, as well as aromatic dried herbal notes. Pair it with five-spiced roast chicken. (Tasted: July 18, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Spectator
Warm plum, raspberry and blackberry fruit is lush in feel, carried by bright anise and apple wood accents through the juicy finish. A good brambly underlay throughout adds energy. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Drink now through 2029.

James Suckling
This is a big and rich red with lots of dried-fruit and chocolate character. Full body, velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. Slightly hollow finish. Bigger style of Trilogy. A blend of 86 per cent cabernet sauvignon, eight per cent petit verdot and six per cent malbec. Drink or hold.

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.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
