Review: Flora Springs 2016 Chardonnay Family Select and Sauvignon Blanc



Two new bottlings from Napa’s Flora Springs!

2016 Flora Springs Chardonnay Family Select Napa Valley – This Napa chardonnay is surprisingly restrained, with oaky aromas present, but modest, allowing notes of vanilla, chestnuts, and florals to come to the fore. On the palate, lemon is more evident, as is a gently sweet nougat note. The finish runs to honeysuckle and some baking spice. Nice little wine. B+ / $35

2016 Flora Springs Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley – Initially a bit overwhelming with ammonia, this wine quickly settles into a routine of heavy-duty florals and minerals, with an apple-hued, acidic tang on the back end. Relatively unremarkable on the whole considering the price. B- / $26
