Flora Springs Merlot 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

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’ve bottled it with a Stelvin closure. The 2008 vintage shows full fruit characteristics of strawberry and cherry, with a hint of raspberry and spice. Rather than make you sweat for it, we’re going to 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
