Another Flora Springs specialty wine is the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Hillside Reserve, which comes from the vineyard above their winery. Abundant cedar wood, graphite, smoky oak, blackcurrants and black cherries soar from the glass of this dense purple-colored wine. There’s plenty of structure, but gorgeous fruit as well as considerable aging potential. This is another long-term prospect to cellar for a minimum of 5-6 years and drink over the following 35-40. Drink Date: 2021-2062. Score – 94+. (Robert Parker Jr.,, Dec. 30, 2016)
