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. (11/2002)

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. (RP) (8/2002)
Purchased from a liquor store which went out of business. The bottles have been stored properly their entire life.
