Insanely consistent bottling. Medium to deep ruby red with a purplish hue. Layered nose with nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla and dark cherries. Moderate tannins (6.5/10) with a medium plus to full body. Complex and balanced with silky notes of cinnamon, vanilla, red cherries and a little black berries. Long and lingering finish. Very well put together and excellent QPR. Drink till 2024.

First time trying the 2013 Flora Spring Cabernet Sauvignon and we were thoroughly surprised. Super dark and intense ruby red. Classic Napa and oaky nose with notes of baking spices like nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla as well as some blackberries and dark cherries. Moderate tannins (7/10) with a moderate plus body. Very similar on the palate, very extracted and fruit forward. Coated with red and dark fruits. Some light nutmeg and other baking spice undertone. Long finish. Great QPR we will definitely pick up a few bottles! Drink till 2024.

Blackberry, cassis, raspberry preserves, eucalyptus, licorice, mossy earth, oak and dried sage. Great structure and moderate tannins.

One of my all time favorite wineries. (Probably because an old and well aged Trilogy is what got me hooked on wine!) Dark and purple. Slow moving legs. Smells of heavenly blackberries and currant...slight hint of leather. Tasted beautifully of vanilla oak, cinnamon and cola. Loved it as always.
