2011 Flora Springs Napa Cabernet

In Cabernet on January 27, 2015 at 12:44 pm

floraThis is a bold, classic Napa Cabernet Sauvignon with a gorgeous core of dark, brambly fruit – black cherry, black raspberry and boysenberry – framed by spicy notes of black pepper, anise, clove, cinnamon stick and fresh sage. Lush, rich and full-bodied, the wine shows off a vanilla-tinged finish that is smooth and silky.  It drinks with youthful brilliance now, but will age in your cellar until 2022.

With Flora Springs, you get it all: a dedicated family, an exceptional vineyard, and Cabernet Sauvignon.

You don’t find that often in Napa anymore. Families sell their ancient wineries and vineyards.  Land (and grapes) are expensive.  Cabernet is often youthful and planted in the wrong place on a clandestine money-making scheme.

Classic Napa Cabernet from land now planted with vines for over a century and a family with almost 40 years of refining it.  Considering the price their neighbors charge, this Cabernet was always a bargain, now it’s an absolute steal.

Long forgotten as a historic vine growing region, South Africa has emerged within the last decade as a serious New World contender.  Dramatic “Cape-style” Bordeaux blends, powerful whites, and an exceptionally talented group of young vintners are making South Africa’s wines better than ever.  This tasting not only explores the history of the region, but also its many wine treasures.
