As reported last year, perhaps the finest Cabernet Sauvignon I have tasted from Flora Springs is their 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon 20th Anniversary Reserve. Bottled only in magnums (250 cases), it is a prodigious Napa Cabernet. Aged in 60% new French oak for 24 months before being bottled without filtration, it reveals an opaque plum/purple color in addition to an explosive, multi-dimensional nose of coffee, kirsch liqueur, creme de cassis, dried herbs, tobacco, and spice. Full-bodied, with fabulous purity, a seamless texture, and a 40-second finish, it represents Cabernet Sauvignon at its most profound. Remarkably, it is soft enough to be drunk now, but promises to age well for 25 or more years. Robert Parker 96

Robert Parker Amazingly exotic aromatic spices and lots of jazzy oak, but still the fruit gushes forth, with layers of currant, black cherry, plum, coffee, toffee and spice. Finishes with a long, intricate, detailed aftertaste that lingers. Drink now through 2012. 200 cases made. (JL) Wine Spectator " 96
