While a fan of Flora Springs Trilogy, I found this particular vintage to be lacking in depth. In fact, it was a little overpowering, which leads me to believe it could benefit with a little cellaring. I have a few more bottles of the 2004 that I will revisit in 2-5 years, as I was underwhelmed with it's current development. Smokey, with blackberry and coffee undertones, this would go well with pork or beef. As mentioned, the tannin levels were high, and they may have gone a little heavy on the Merlot for this version of a typically solid wine.

Another wine that I've watched develop over the past decade. Trilogy goes from strength to strength. The wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc; with vivid fruit, it usually drinks very well on release but is capable of aging.

I have never tasted a more compelling example of Flora Springs' Trilogy Proprietary Red Wine than the 1994. It is one of the stand outs of the 1994 California Cabernet Sauvignon barrel tastings. The wine boasts an opaque purple color, a huge, sweet, pure nose of blueberries and blackberries gently infused with toasty oak and spice. Full-bodied, with fabulous purity, this multidimensional, layered wine builds in the mouth, finishing with spectacular length and balance. It appears to be an awesome, totally riveting example of a wine that should drink well from 2000-2020. Wow!

Deep ruby cast. Moderately full-bodied. Balanced acidity. Moderately extracted. Moderately oaked. Mildly tannic. Mint, red fruits, vanilla. Aromatic and harmonious with a lush, supple entry. Exquisitely made, with gentle extraction making for a velvety mouthfeel. Flavorful and generous through the lengthy finish.

No one was more critical of Flora Springs' proprietary red wine, Trilogy, than I during the eighties. Things have unquestionably changed, as this wine, usually a blend of approximately 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc, has become a serious entry into the high quality proprietary red wine sweepstakes. It is aged in 50% new French oak, and since 1991 does not appear to have been processed. Consequently, it is far more lively, with a more natural texture, greater aromatics, and a creamier, more pleasing flavor profile. The 1991 Trilogy offers a cassis, smoky, blackcurrant-scented nose, elegant, soft, medium-bodied flavors, moderate tannin, and a complex, cedary, black fruit profile. Drink it over the next 10-12 years.

Smooth, ripe and spicy, in a complex, elegant style with cherry, plum and berry flavors and attractive spicy nuances. Finishes with good length, fine, integrated tannins and a pretty dash of toasty oak. Best from 1999 through 2005. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot.

As for the 2004 Trilogy, this proprietary blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, and the rest Malbec, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot (a quintet rather than a trilogy, in essence) is an elegant Bordeaux look-alike, with notes of cedar, cranber...

An impressive red blend, tightly structured, with a rich array of currant, black cherry, anise, cedar, tar and spice flavors of remarkable harmony and finesse, ending in a long, complex aftertaste. Best from 2000 through 2009. Contains Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.
