Flora Springs Trilogy 2006
Wine Tasting Notes Exhibits all the classic Trilogy attributes with a lovely cassis and cherry bouquet as well as huge black fruit flavors that envelope the palate. Each varietal is vital to the outcome - the Cabernet exhibits black cherry and dark cocoa character, while the Merlot carries these flavors to the back of the palate where the Cabernet Franc adds notes of coffee and toffee to the finish.
Wines of such remarkable character and quality as to be in a class by themselves.

From Wine Enthusiast: 95 points and an Editors' Choice, Wine Enthusiast: "A drop-dead gorgeous red blend that continues Flora Springs’ fine streak of Bordeaux-style wines. Full-bodied and dry, it’s balanced and rich, with complex flavors of currants, minerals, cedar and spice. The tannins are strong, but ultra-refined. Drink this high quality wine now and through 2015." (05/09) 93 points Robert Parker: "The vintage is exemplified beautifully by the 2005 Trilogy. This is a superb example of this proprietary red. Beautiful deep red, blue, and black fruits all intermingle with some crushed rock, lavender, and spice box in a very scented bouquet. In the mouth, it is layered, medium to full-bodied, with sweet tannin, gorgeous purity, and length. This is a stunning wine that should drink nicely for 15 or more years." (12/07) One of the best Trilogy bottlings I have had in years! The '05 shows a ripe core of berry fruit with a firm structure and ripe fruit tannins. Hints of coffee, mocha and asian spice add the extra touches. Drink now with some air or hold for 5-7 years. (Trey Beffa, K&L Wine Merchants)
