Flora Springs Napa Valley Hillside Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Sauvignon 1996

Winemaker's Notes:

The Rutherford Hillside Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps our most elegant single-vineyard Cabernet, exhibiting wonderful complexity and flavors entirely unique to this hillside vineyard. The aromas of black cherry, cassis and cocoa flow into the palate and arebalanced by a good acid structure and firm tannins. It is flawless and clean, with a hint of the Rutherford minerality in the middle. The finish is classic Flora Springs – long and smooth.

Deliciously complex, rich and elegant, with ripe, polished and sophisticated currant, black cherry, anise, sage and spice, picking up pretty oak shadings. Lingering, rich aftertaste... Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1996 Flora Springs Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Hillside Reserve 750ml
