Flora Springs Merlot Napa Valley 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

So forward and appealing right now, its hard to resist, but this could gain a little traction with a two or three years of age. Its polished in cherry jam and blackberry-pie filling, with earthy tones of coffee, figs, sage and cedar. The intricate tannins play nicely against the acidity, which gives it an upscale feeling.

The intricate tannins play nicely against the acidity, which give it an upscale feeling.Wine Tasting NotesOur Napa Valley Merlot remains consistent over the years and this vintage is no exception. It boasts full fruit characteristics of strawberry and cherry, with a hint of raspberry and spiciness. A small amount of new oak barrels were used in the aging process, and we used a combination of French, American and Eastern European barrels to create a pronounced, but layered oak characteristic in the wine. The tannins are tea-like and smooth, making this wine one of our favorites for any occasion.
