By now the story is well known, nearly 25 years ago, our mother and grandmother Flora Komes was suffering from a blood disorder. True to form, she chose not to follow her doctor’s wishes, and decided to forgo her prescribed medication. After reading numerous reports on the benefits of red wine, Flora began a strict regimen of one glass of her very own Flora Springs Merlot each evening. We don’t claim to be working miracles here at Flora Springs, but Flora has adhered to her glass a day dose, and, on November 7th, she will be celebrating her 98th birthday!
“One big drink or two little ones,” Grandma Flora likes to say. As her grandchildren, we felt if you’re only going to savor one glass a day, it had better be a special one. So in a continued effort to keep the doctor away, we created Flora’s Legacy, an exclusive blend for Flora using fruit from each of our five single vineyard wines, plus a touch of Syrah and a drop of Merlot (for sentimental reasons).
Flora’s cellar is stocked, so with her permission, we would like to offer you, for the first time, the opportunity to enjoy the 2006 rendition of this sensational Cabernet blend. The 2006 Flora’s Legacy represents the two guiding lights of our winery: matriarch Flora Komes and the pursuit of crafting great artisan wine.
