Flora Springs Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2015 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon combines fruit from our estate vineyards in St. Helena, Rutherford and Oakville. The hand harvested grapes were cold-soaked for several days to extract avor and color prior to fermentation. Several lots underwent extended maceration to rene and soften the tannins, and all lots were aged in a combination of French (75%) and American (25%) oak barrels for 18 months prior to blending. This is a warm and richly satisfying Cabernet that lls the mouth with avors of black cherry syrup, blackberry preserves, vanilla, brown butter, praline and a hint of anise. The wine has a loose knit structure and is built for immediate enjoyment, yet a tangible streak of pleasant acidity promises ageability for a decade or more.

Vanilla cream, blueberry preserves, chocolate cream, licorice and and some light spice on the nose. Creamy textured with a bit of a tart entry of cherry and cranberry fruit, young strawberry and a lightly green mid palate of floral notes and warm fruit with a slightly bitter, plummy finish.
