Flora Springs Merlot 375 2007
Wine Tasting Notes Our Napa Valley Merlot remains consistent over the years and this vintage is no exception. It boasts full fruit characteristics of strawberry and cherry, with a hint of raspberry and spiciness. A small amount of new oak barrels were used in the aging process, and we used a combination of French, American and Eastern European barrels to create a pronounced, but layered oak characteristic in the wine. The tannins are tea-like and smooth, making this wine one of our favorites for any occasion.
Wines of such remarkable character and quality as to be in a class by themselves.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Baby cab style merlot. Nice round flavors of supple fruit. Really nice! Left with a bottle. - Tasted at Flora Springs "The Room" 4/20/10

Our Napa Valley Merlot has always been a favorite among seekers of soft supple red wines ready to drink from the get go. To celebrate the "born ready" exuberance of our merlot we chose to bottle the 2007 vintage in a Stelvin closure. The 2007 vintage shows full fruit characteristics of strawberry and cherry, with a hint of raspberry and spice. Rather than make you sweat for it, we'll just make you twist for it.Flora Springs uses Merlot from the Flora Springs Estate in Rutherford and St. Helena, Crossroads Ranch in Oakville, and Cypress Ranch in Pope Valley for this Napa Valley bottling. We have found there is no single spell to making great Merlot, however the combination of vineyard site, meticulous farming methods, and specialized clone and rootstock selection allows us to craft a Merlot of great complexity and depth. Although we do feel our Merlot vineyards have a bit of magic in them, the real trick is how quickly our Napa Valley Merlot disappears. - Winery
