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.
90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2011
Medium golden yellow. Orange blossom, nutty lees, toffee and oak char lifted by high notes of spices, lavender and mint. Juicy, spicy and sappy on the palate, with brisk acidity intensifying the citrus oil and hazelnut flavors. Very complex and penetrating for a second wine. Finishes firm but not hard, with a hint of soft citrus fruit and good texture and length.
