Flora Springs Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2012
Long known for the quality of its Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley continues its reign at the top echelon of the world’s wine growing areas for this renowned grape. In keeping with the Napa Valley green movement, almost all of Flora Springs' red wines are sourced from its organically-farmed estate vineyards. In Flora Springs Napa Valley Cabernet, they always look to create a consistent style that avoids the vagaries occurring from vintage to vintage despite Mother Nature’s influence on the weather and other naturally occurring variables. To accomplish this task, they blend fruit from several Flora Springs’ estate vineyards in various areas of the Valley.

It, Now! l
Rutherford’s soils are primarily gravel, sand and loam, and are dominated by volcanic deposits and Franciscan marine sediment. They provide excellent water drainage and ideal conditions for Cabernet Sauvignon. However, to these vignerons the "dust" means much more than dirt. It is the combination of earth, special climate, meticulous fruit-focused winemaking and unrelenting patience that produces world-class wines.
