Flora Springs

Napa Valley Merlot 2017

One of the few merlots I have had lately that tasted like something. Earthy with a bit of oak. Not fruit forward, but still there. Super easy drinking. — 6 days ago

Flora Beneventano Falanghina 2017

Glows like a golden ale and smells like apricot green tea and smoked seaweed. Tastes like sour peaches and yellow plums. Big fruity body with some grip and tannin. — a month ago

Holy Smoke Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

9.3

Flora Springs will always hold a special place in my heart. It was an older bottle of Trilogy that was my “ah-ha” moment with wine. Their single vineyards are nice wines, but the Rennie Reserve and Rutherford Hillside are undoubtedly my favorite from the portfolio. Hard to believe 2013 wines are approaching 8yrs, so I wanted to check in...

This poured dark in the glass but had a touch of fading around the rim. Immediately hit with very dark and roasted aromatics...mocha, baking spices like nutmeg and a hint of vanilla, mixed berry pie, and roasted fig. I was both surprised, and pleased, at how smooth and integrated this was on the palate. Stops just short of decadent, with berry infused dark chocolate, ripe black cherries and blackberries, sweet herbs, lavender, and a clean finish. I’d say this is definitely in peak drinking window and not getting any better. Enjoy over the next 5yrs or so.

Sunset Hills Vineyard

Shenandoah Springs Vineyard Chardonnay 2019

Excellent Chardonnay from a local winery in NOVA, but available in local stores. Robust flavor, good length, warm oak texture. These wines have really matured over the last 10 years. If in the area, don’t pass it up. — 20 days ago

St Innocent Winery

Seven Springs Vineyard Pinot Noir 1993

Red cherry and dried berry fruit aromas and flavors, lovely balancing acidity, drinking beautifully but still seemingly capable of further development, long, lingering finish, lovely aged Oregon Pinot!! — 13 days ago
