    Winemaker's Notes:

    The grapes for Trilogy come exclusively from our estate vineyard, the Komes Ranch, which surrounds Flora Springs Winery. This beautifully diverse 110 acre vineyard begins at the 500 foot elevation and slopes down to the valley floor, offering varying exposures, clones, soil types and vine age. Located at the northern boundary of the famed Rutherford Appellation, it is a prime location for red varietals. The Winemaker's Notes: The philosophy of blending is basic to the concept of Trilogy. We approach this wine like an artist with a palette of colors. The result is a complex masterpiece of flavors and aromas that have great persistence on the palate and are tempered with a sense of elegance and finesse. A preliminary Trilogy blend was made after malo-lactic fermentation had concluded. The wine rested quietly in small (50% new) French oak barrels until just prior to bottling. At this time, an extensive tasting was conducted and the blend was adjusted. The blend for the 1996 Trilogy is 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc.
