External Reviews for Flora Springs Merlot
Flora's favorite, our Napa Valley Merlot is a soft, supple red wine made to open right away, without waiting! The 2012 is bursting with big black cherry, juniper berry and black licorice flavors, easing into notes of cardamom, cinnamon, and gentle vanilla creme. There's an intriguing granite minerality to the wine along with a toasty, sweet oak profile in the finish. This is a wonderful stand-alone wine, but can be paired with a variety of dishes. It's forceful personality make it a good match for almost anything a Cabernet would be paired with, a favorite steak dish for instance, yet the wine's tannin structure is soft enough to pair with eggplant parmesan or your favorite chicken dish. - WineryAging: 15 months in 95% French oak and 5% American oak barrels; mixture of new and seasoned
