Flora Springs Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes for our 2014 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon were grown in our estate vineyards located in some of Napa Valley’s most prestigious appellations, including Rutherford, Oakville and St. Helena. The hand-harvested grapes, picked at night, went through a four day ‘cold soak’ to extract rich fruit flavor prior to fermentation. At dryness, a portion of the wine was pressed off the grape skins immediately while the remaining tanks went through a period of extended maceration to create fullness and texture and to soften the tannins of the finished wine. Prior to blending, the wine aged in a mix of new and seasoned oak barrels for 22 months. This fruit-forward Cabernet offers up lovely aromas of blackberry jam, dark plum and boysenberry with hints of toasted spice and dark chocolate. In the mouth, lush fruit is layered with notes of brown baking spices, vanilla, dark espresso bean along with traces of fresh sage and lavender. This is a warm, voluptuous Napa Valley Cabernet, packed with fruit but displaying a good balance of oak, tannin and acid.

The aromatic, fresh and inviting fruit aromas of ripe raspberry, cherry and red currant are a bit buttery here on the nose. Silky textured on entry, this develops a prickly acidity in the mouth as the tannins take hold, yet delivers bright black cherry and black currant fruit throughout, zesty baking spice and a juicy pie filling towards the chocolate finish.

Located at the base of the Mayacamas Mountains in the far Northwest corner of the Rutherford appellation, the Flora Springs estate is in the heart of the Napa Valley. Founded in 1978, Flora Springs has been a family affair for over three decades. As both artisan winemakers and growers, the family is committed to the traditions of fine winemaking and responsible stewardship of its 650 acres of vineyard land for future generations to savor and uphold. Today, ninety percent of Flora Springs' red wines are sourced from its organically-farmed estate vineyards, and all of these wines are crafted in their solar-powered 19th-century stone winery and caves.
