We love the holidays here at Flora Springs. However, as we rush to find the perfect gift, cook the most delicious meal, or complete our endless "to do" list, a little stress can find its way in. This is where our Holiday Helper comes in handy. Whenever you feel overwhelmed, relax, pour yourself a glass and remember what the season is really about!  This year the artwork for our Holiday Helper Cabernet Sauvignon is by Ruth Harper, whose work has been featured in many New York Times #1 best-selling children’s picture books. This is the second wine label Ruth has created for us, and her whimsical watercolor of those hard-working but ever-cheerful elves wrapping their holiday gifts is a reminder that even Santa needs a little help!

The Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from Flora Springs’ estate vineyards throughout Napa Valley. It’s a palate-warming wine, with loads of young, vibrant black fruit, juicy cassis and creamy notes of vanilla and cola. There’s a sweet spiciness that comes from the French oak, a hint of mocha, and a slowly evolving note of black licorice. This is a smooth, richly textured, full-bodied Cab with soft tannins and a long, velvety finish. We advise a stress-free food pairing, such as a store-bought roast chicken, Pizza Margherita (takeout is fine), or for an appetizer, hard cheeses with toasted walnuts. Of course, we won’t mind if you enjoy it with your favorite Christmas cookie!

On the Vine

An early bud break followed by warm weather and spring rains brought a rapid start to the 2016 growing season, a near perfect year with beautiful weather from bloom, to berry set, to veraison and harvest. Napa Valley winemakers and vineyard managers worked closely together as the season progressed to ensure grapes ripened uniformly, adjusting vine canopies, thinning fruit and keeping a close eye on soil moisture. The harvest began in mid-August and wrapped up by mid-October, just ahead of the valley’s first significant fall rainstorm.
