Oscar time is here and your invitation to the event hasn’t arrived. But, lighten up and get in the party zone with Flora Springs Wines from the Napa Valley.
As you probably know, this is the high point of the year for Hollywood’s A-Listers and you can sip like one of the elite even if you live in another Zip code.
It’s doesn’t take much to capture the magic of Oscar Night. Formality is the dress code so choose accordingly. Choosing three selections –Trilogy, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot– will set the stage for a dazzling taste extravaganza.
(After the balloting all three are winners.)
The Trilogy selection is an elegant and sophisticated blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, and Malbec.
The curtain opens with dense flavors of black cherry and crème de cassis layered with dark chocolate, espresso bean, hints of licorice with enticing aromas of vanilla, black currant and brown sugar followed by blackberry and cherry flavors and an enticing smooth finish.
The classically structured Cabernet Sauvignon varietal makes an entrance with fruit forward aromas and cheers for black currant, dark fruit and espresso flavors. Its decadently smooth finish will leave you breathless with anticipation.
Floral Springs Merlot scores high on the applause meter. This contender shows showy black cherry and blueberry flavors with notes of dark chocolate, marshmallow and graham crackers. Hints of lavender and leather add complexity, along with a brown spice character from the French oak barrels.
Next, roll out that red rug and put a few spotlights on the house for effect. (The neighbors will probably wonder what you are up to.)
By the time the opening music begins and the house lights dim, the glasses will be filled with anticipation as you await “The Envelope.”
