Mission Briefing

Codename:

Run the Gamut!

Many people have likened today’s Flora Springs Gamut Red Wine to cult favorite wine The Prisoner from Orin Swift. While we have enjoyed The Prisoner, we feel that Gamut is fuller bodied, juicier and more structured.

This wine is a delicious 2011/2012 Bordeaux style blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc. The grapes were born at the heart of Flora Springs’ historic St.Helena property. Anise, blackcurrant, plums, earth and spice are the prominent in this expressive and very delicious wine.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Dark ruby through and through with a darker and nearly opaque heart.

Smell:

Perfumy and rich all at once, with sweet dark berry and dark flower aromas fused with sweet spice, dried fall leaves and a hint of classic Rutherford dust.

Taste:

Flavors here echo the nose, making the wine a very full, rich, layered and delicious treat.

Finish:

Exceedingly long and very plush with dark fruit and spice that persist seemingly forever. At the very end, a hint of sweet spice and dusty bramble linger as a gradual dryness spreads across the palate.

Pairing:

Enjoy this bold wine with something of equal proportion. We’ll be serving Prime Rib and oven-roasted baby potatoes with bay leaves and sage.
