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.
91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2012
Yellow-green. Musky aromas of white peach, orange blossom and nutty lees lifted by minerals and lime. Rounder and drier than the basic chardonnay bottling; less fruity and more serious. The mineral element gives this fairly full chardonnay a firm, youthfully dry quality on the back end. Less ripe and plush than the 2009 version.
