91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate The proprietary red wine called Trilogy is a blend of approximately 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, and 15% Cabernet Franc, proportions that are reminiscent of the famed Pauillac, Pichon-Lalande. The last three vintages are all impressive wines. The 1993 Trilogy is closed, with tougher tannin than the 1994 and 1995, but the dark purple color, and promising nose of black fruits, spicy oak, and floral aromas, in addition to the wine's full-bodied richness and long finish, suggest exciting things will emerge. Given the rustic tannin in the finish, this wine needs 4-5 years of cellaring, but it should age well for 25 years. Flora Springs, one of the largest vineyard owners in Napa Valley, estate bottles only a fraction of their production, with the bulk of their wine production being sold to other wineries.

About Estate:
Flora Springs is a family endeavor that epitomizes three generations of hard work, dedication and a team effort. The vitality of our family is obvious as we set about the task of growing great grapes and making world-class wine. Even the name Flora Springs has significance – Flora is our mother, and the springs refer to the natural water source on the estate that has flowed uninterrupted through Napa Valley winemaking history.

It all began 30 years ago when our parents, Jerry and Flora Komes, bought the first vineyard – a vineyard with history, great soils and two ghost wineries. What was to have been Jerry and Flora’s retirement project was destined to become a lifetime passion for son John Komes and daughter Julie Garvey and their families. John quickly talked the family (including brother Mike Komes) into making wine. Julie and John worked side by side making the first two vintages of Flora Springs wines, while Julie’s husband, Pat Garvey, took over the vineyard side of things. Then in 1980, Ken Deis was hired as Winemaker and he remained at Flora Springs until 2008, when he passed the winemaking legacy to his assistant winemaker of 18 years, Paul Steinauer.
