About Joseph Phelps
Joseph Phelps Vineyards was born out of owner Joseph Phelps's love for the Napa Valley, which he discovered while his construction firm was building a winery near St. Helena. Today, Joseph Phelps Vineyards produces several wines that are 100% estate grown, including the flagship Insignia, a lush, highly concentrated blend of Bordeaux varietals.

($48) Ruby-red. Cassis, licorice, tobacco and a whiff of mint on the nose. Sweet and rather soft on the palate, with black fruit, tobacco and chocolate flavors nicely framed by fresh acidity. Finishes with fairly even, dusty tannins and suggestions of mint and menthol. Very Napa Valley.
