About Freestone (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.
89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2009
($40) Good bright yellow. Sexy aromas of lemon drop, stone and tropical fruits, and butterscotch, with a hint of resiny oak. Dense and sweet, with a juicy spine of acidity giving shape to the nectarine and mineral flavors. A fruit-driven wine that finishes classically dry and rocky. (The flagship 2007 Freestone chardonnay, which was scheduled to have been bottled in April, looks to be the best yet under this label.)
