Wine Enthusiast 93 points - The pure, intense and vibrant fruit is rich, focused, deep and expansive without being weighty. The core of dark berry, mineral, graphite and cedary notes gain nuance while retaining structure and purpose. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2028. 4,882 cases made. -JL

"Chalky tannins and subdued fruit and tannin weight make this an inviting, food-friendly wine, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller amounts of Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Made from estate vineyards, it's rich in black cherry and dark chocolate, concentrated and layered. It ends in a spicy back note of pepper. Cellar through 2022."

|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.
