Trilogy used to be a formula blend of three varietals, but this year it’s Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. This is Flora Springs’ flagship wine, and a very good one. It’s a flashy wine. The fruit is ripe, the oak is notable, the tannins testify to the best vineyard practices.
There are 7,500 cases of the outstanding 1999 Trilogy (a blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, and 4% Malbec). Its elegance and finesse are nicely balanced by the wine's considerable richness. A dense ruby/purple color is followed by aromas of malt chocolate, cocoa, black cherries, currants, licorice, and earth. The wine is medium to full-bodied, pure, and ripe, with nicely integrated acidity and tannin. It will drink well for 12-15 years.
Trim and elegant, with rich cedar, chocolate and black cherry, hints of tobacco and dill. Turns tight and firmly tannic on the finish. Drink now through 2006. 595 cases made.
