Flora Springs

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.

White Springs Vineyard Dry Riesling 2017

Wine #5 from my mixed case of Finger Lakes wines. I love the wines coming out of Ravines. This Dry Riesling from the White Springs Vineyard is absolutely delicious with notes of ripe juicy green apple, citrus, white peach, fresh cut green grass, lemon verbena and limestone. There is definitely some residual sugar here, but the medium plus acidity balances it out nicely. Cheers! — 22 days ago
