In 1977, Jerry and Flora Komes stumbled across a dilapidated wine estate in the heart of Napa Valley and saw its potential. Today the third generation of their family, the Komes’ and the Garveys, continues a legacy of winemaking excellence. Together they own 650 acres of prime Napa Valley vineyard land in Carneros, Oakville, Rutherford, St. Helena and Pope Valley. Each year, 20% of the fruit from the harvest is selected for the Flora Springs wines and the remainder is sold to neighboring Napa Valley wineries. From the beginning, the family has farmed its vineyards sustainably and has since implemented organic practices wherever possible. Close to 40% of the estate’s vineyards are now certified organic by CCOF (California Certified Organic Farmers), accounting for nearly all of the grapes which go into its red wines. All red wine is produced using solar power generated from the 6,500 square feet of panels that the family installed at Komes Ranch in 2007. Inside the stone walls of the century old winery are stainless steel and concrete fermentors specifically sized to match each vineyard block. Below the winery, is the family’s 1,000 linear foot cellar. Carved into the hillside, it naturally provides the ideal, energy efficient environment to age wines. Paul Steinauer, who began working as Assistant Winemaker in 1990, was promoted to Winemaker in 2008.

Tasting notes
Aromas ofblack currants, cloves, sweet spices and anise are nicely integrated with juicy, soft tannins. Hints of tobacco, cedar and vanilla accompany the long, rich finish. Sustainable

Technical notes
The grapes were harvested from estate vineyards in St. Helena, Rutherford and Oakville. Immediately following primary fermentation, the must from a few tanks was pressed off its skins to maintain the bright, fruit forward elements of the variety. The remainder was left on its skins for an extended period of time to lend depth and complexity. The wine aged for 22 months in French (57%) and American (43%) oak barrels.
