Attractive aromas of cassis and cherry bouquet are nicely integrated with pronounced, round flavorsof ripe black fruit. This full-bodied, voluptuous red finishes with richness and polish.
Wine Enthusiast 92 points - The 2010 Trilogy, a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, 4% Malbec and 1% Cabernet Franc, possesses a dark ruby/purple color as well as juicy, kirsch, cassis and blacker fruits, medium to full body, sweet tannin, a seductive, lush texture and an elegant yet authoritative, ripe style. Reminiscent of both Napa Valley and Bordeaux, it should drink well over the next decade or more.

"Trilogy is the wine that made Flora Springs famous, and it’s still excellent. Remarkable for its rich approachability, with fabulously ripe berry, cherry, cassis and chocolate flavors that drink beautifully now, and will continue to be delightful a few more years." Wine Enthusiast 92 points
|(83% Cabernet Sauvignon/12% Merlot/4% Malbec/1% Cabernet Franc). 2010 marks the 26th anniversary of Trilogy, the flagship cuvee of Flora Springs. Trilogy, one of the original Meritage wines, is produced from hand-selected lots of grapes from the best estate parcels located on the bench of the Mayacamas in the northwest corner of the Rutherford appellation. Aged for 22 months in French oak (60% new), the varieties merge together to form a balanced lush wine.
|Founded in 1978 in the heart of Napa Valley, Flora Springs has been a family affair for more than three decades, developing an admirable record for producing high quality, region-specific wines. Now in their third generation of stewardship, the Komes and Garvey families own 650 acres of vineyards throughout five appellations in the Napa Valley – Carneros, Oakville, Rutherford, St. Helena and Pope Valley enabling them to maintain quality with estate grown, hand picked fruit. They select 20% of the finest fruit from each vintage for their own wines and sell the remaining 80% to neighboring wineries. From the beginning, as artisan farmers and winemakers, the family has employed sustainable vineyard practices. More recently they’ve converted 40% of their estate vineyards, which account for 90% of their red wines, to certified organic farming.
