(92 points) Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot form the trio of this blend, yielding rounded, red fruit-driven flavor. Dense tannins shoulder its body and weight, as savory anise, dried herb and pencil characteristics figure in.

The 2014 vintage marks the 30th release of Flora Springs’ flagship wine, Trilogy. The genesis of Trilogy dates back to 1984 when our family set out to make the best wine possible by selecting the highest quality wine lots culled from our estate vineyards in Napa Valley. By blending traditional Bordeaux varietals—Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc—we created one of the original Meritage wines. Over the years we’ve added other Bordeaux varietals to this Cabernet-based blend, always seeking to create the very finest wine from each individual vintage. Our 2014 Trilogy brings together the finest lots of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot from our estate vineyards in Napa Valley. Dense, concentrated and stunningly rich, this gorgeous Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon overflows with blackberry, sweet cassis and black cherry fruit, layered with warm cocoa, licorice and a touch of tanned leather. This is a succulent, fleshy wine, with warming notes of vanilla and oak, cola and cardamom. It has a firm yet fine tannic structure and a sturdy, full-bodied profile that will serve it well into the next decade.
