Flora Springs

Flora Springs Vineyards and Estate is situated at the base of the Mayacamas Mountains within the Rutherford appellation. Founded in 1978 by Jerry and Flora Komes, Flora Springs Winery has been a family run operation for over three decades. Jerry and Flora's children, John Komes and his wife Carrie, along with Julie and Pat Garvey, have been the driving force behind the winery since its inception and still are today according to our Flora Springs wine guide. While a plethora of different grape varieties are used to produce their Napa Valley and Signature wine lines, it is their single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon series that receives the highest accolades within our Flora Springs ratings. In keeping with the Napa Valley green movement, almost all of Flora Springs' red wines are sourced from its organically-farmed estate vineyards, and all of their wines are crafted in the Flora Springs’ solar-powered winery and caves. To learn more about their wines be sure to check out our Flora Springs reviews below.

Flora Springs 2010 Rutherford Hillside Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (Rutherford)

  • Cellar Selection
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $125
Don’t even think of opening this Cab before 2018. It’s very tannic and closed, and locked down in astringency still. But it’s so balanced, so rich with blackberries, chocolate and cassis, and yet so dry and minerally, that it’s the modern poster child for an ageable Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Wonderful to see this veteran Napa producer remaining vital and…  — S.H.  (8/1/2013)

Flora Springs 2005 Rennie Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (St. Helena)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $100
An extraordinary wine, among the greatest Cabs in Flora Springs’ long history. One hundred percent varietal, and made from a single clone, it shows fabulous density and serious weight, with dramatically rich blackberry, currant and cedar flavors anchored by a firm minerality. For all its power, the wine is balanced and elegant. An ager, it will drink well for at…  — S.H.  (4/1/2009)

Flora Springs 2008 Hillside Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (Rutherford)

  1. $100
A wonderfully smooth, dry, complex young Cabernet, and yes, the tannins have that famous Rutherford dust. The wine is the opposite of a fruit bomb, with moderate alcohol and interesting flavors of herbs, cherries, blackberries and spicy sandalwood. As good as it is now, it should ride out the next 8–10 years.  — S.H.  (7/1/2011)

Flora Springs 2007 Hillside Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (Rutherford)

  • Cellar Selection
  1. $100
An amazingly rich, complex and ageworthy wine. Made from 100% Cabernet grapes, it shows firm, plush flavors of blackberries and black currants, with a sour cherry candy tartness that’s clean and piquant in the mouth. But the wine is also very tannic, giving a dry astringency through the finish. Should reward time in the cellar. Best 2012–2018.  — S.H.  (6/1/2010)

Flora Springs 2005 Trilogy Red (Napa Valley)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $65
A drop-dead gorgeous red blend that continues Flora Springs’ fine streak of Bordeaux-style wines. Full-bodied and dry, it’s balanced and rich, with complex flavors of currants, minerals, cedar and spice. The tannins are strong, but ultra-refined. Drink this high-quality wine now and through 2015.  — S.H.  (5/1/2009)

Flora Springs 2010 Rennie Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (St. Helena)

  • Cellar Selection
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $125
This is a tremendous wine that’s packed with flavor and dramatically structured. It’s made in the modern cult style of exceptionally rich and ripe with sweet, toasty oak, and delicious blackberries, black currants, dark chocolate and anise. The tannins are strong, but refined. Begin popping the cork in eight years, and this beauty could still be going strong in…  — S.H.  (8/1/2013)

Flora Springs 2007 Rennie Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (St. Helena)

  1. $100
What a wonderful wine. So pure, so fine and so Bordeaux-esque, like a fine young Margaux that needs time. Made from 100% Cabernet grapes, it shows classic blackberry and black currant flavors, beautifully oaked, with smooth, polished tannins and a fleshy mouthfeel. A feminine wine, it has great charm now, and should develop in the bottle for many years.  — S.H.  (6/1/2010)

Flora Springs 2008 Trilogy Red (Napa Valley)

  1. $65
A flashy, classy wine, grown in the estate vineyard in the benchlands and hills above Rutherford. Shows lots of sweet, ripe cherry fruit and toasty oak, but has enough of an acid-tannin structure to dry it out for balance. Should hold and develop over the next 6–8 years.  — S.H.  (7/1/2011)
