Winemaker Notes

This Cabernet originates in the Pope Valley Region of the Napa Valley. Many consider this region the last frontier of Napa. In keeping with the wild, untamed character of Pope Valley and the wild marauding boars that invade our vineyard and enjoy grapes almost as much as we do, we named this robust, highly concentrated Cabernet - Wild Boar. The Wild Boar Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has firm tannins that support very concentrated fruit. This is a muscular wine with immediate appeal. It is rustically styled and accented with spicy black currants, anise and a touch of tobacco. We consider this a wine that harkens back to a traditional style California Cabernet.

Flora Springs, Napa Valley, California
1997 Wild Boar Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
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.
