Flora Springs Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Year after year this wine is a favorite among our loyal fans - it exhibits all of the characteristics of a classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Ripe flavors of black cherry and cocoa envelop the front of the mouth and move across the palate into a soft lingering finish. Each vintage we look to reveal the true character of our estate vineyards while using oak as an undertone, highlighting the inherent flavors.

Rating: 87/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. Here is a wine of a decidedly mixed mind. It leads with fairly bright and generously fruited, cassis-like aromas that are infused with a nice note of creamy sweetness and then runs to fairly abrupt tannins that make quick work of its young and undeveloped flavors. Its astringency comes as a real challenge and may prove in the end to be its undoing, but it is sufficiently rich to earn a place in cellar and should be helped appreciably by five more years of age.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Cellar for future drinking. Wine will improve with bottle aging.

Rating: 87/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. With suggestions of coffee, dried brush and dark chocolate bringing it an identity all its own, this bottling is built like its cellarmates insofar as it is fairly firm and shows a streak of chalky young tannins, but it also shows resilient fruit reaching past its present toughness. It can be confidently held for at least four or five years.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Cellar for future drinking. Wine will improve with bottle aging.

Rating: 85/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. A little high strung when compared to its siblings, Flora Springs basic Napa Valley bottling is a Cabernet with real limits. Its pert, cherry-like traits come without a great sense of depth, and it is increasingly defined by wiry acids as it crosses the palate. It may soften with age, but it will not gain in richness, and it trails well behind the winery's best.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Cellar for future drinking.

Rating: 92/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. The deepest and most polished of the numerous Flora Springs offerings, the Rennie Reserve is long on sweet fruit and gets a marked boost in richness from its plentiful oak. Firm and full-bodied with just a bit of baby fat easing its way at the moment, it is both a fairly complete Cabernet and one that is charged with lots of youthful energy. Its initial plumpness may invite early enjoyment, but make no mistake, this wine is one meant for the cellaring and is certain to grow for another five to ten years.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Cellar for future drinking.
