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.

Expert Reviews

93(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2011

(just bottled):  Full medium ruby.  Black fruits, minerals, licorice, tar, menthol and sweet oak on the nose.  Sweet and creamy on entry, then quite penetrating and tight in the mid-palate, showing a medicinal reserve for the vintage.  A backward and rather powerful Insignia with the structure to require, and reward, considerable aging.  This was a good quantity year for this flagship bottling, with about 16,000 cases produced.

About Napa Valley

Napa Valley is the most famous wine-growing area in the U.S. It begins at the base of Mount St. Helena in the north and tapers off some 30 miles to the south into the floodplain where the Napa River enters San Francisco Bay. From Mount St. Helena to the city of Napa, the valley is defined by two north-south ridgelines of the Coast Range Mountains.
