In celebration of that most wonderful time of year and the beloved vintage toys that our matriarch, Flora Komes, collected each holiday season, Flora Springs has brought together six of our favorite toy soldier designs into one dazzling marching band, presented in a hand-crafted wooden box. Ideal as a gift, this eye-popping six-bottle collection includes etched and hand-painted musical toy soldiers reminiscent of the classic seasonal ballet, The Nutcracker.  

From a spectacular Napa Valley vintage, the 2014 Flora Springs Holiday Marching Band wine is bold and expressive, with core fruit flavors of blackberry, black currant, and blueberry attended by sweet notes of mocha, allspice, vanilla and sassafras. Sumptuous and richly-textured, the Cabernet-dominated wine deftly balances dark fruit and oak, with just enough acid to keep it lively on the palate. It has a lasting finish, with silky tannins that expand at the back to reveal hints of black tea, dark licorice and cedar. The wine can easily be enjoyed now, but can also be cellared through 2030.

On the Vine

Although 2014 saw the continuation of California’s drought, heavy rains in late February and early March gave the vines plenty of water as they emerged from dormancy. A warm, relatively frost-free spring allowed bud break, flowering and fruit set to proceed without incident, and warm, dry weather throughout the summer brought the grapes through veraison to perfect ripeness. A relatively early harvest capped off a near-perfect growing season. 2014 was the third outstanding vintage in a row for Napa Valley, one that produced wines of enormous concentration, depth and flavor.
