Exclusively for Wine Club Members
When John Komes bottled Flora Springs’ first Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon – the Rutherford Hillside Reserve in 1989 – it became a benchmark for Napa Valley Cabernet, bringing awareness to the concept of site-specific wines. Since then Flora Springs has enhanced its Single Vineyard Program, and today we offer five elegant and powerful wines that reflect the small vineyard sites and even individual blocks in which they are grown. The idea for the “Five Cuts and Five Cabs” dinner is a nod to John’s early days of selling these Single Vineyard Cabernets. Back then he developed a successful winemaker dinner pairing each Cabernet with a specific cut of premium beef. He found that the words used to describe the texture and tenderness of a steak enhanced the understanding and enjoyment of Cabernet. In true John fashion, he was well ahead of his time, and his innovative concept is still relevant today.
Join John Komes at The Estate for an evening of stories where we’ll explore the magic of Cabernet and how it enhances the enjoyment of food. Find your perfect pairing with Flora Springs’ Single Vineyard Cabernets, wines so outstanding they deserve to be bottled on their own.
