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.
92-95 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2014
(based on 75% cabernet sauvignon): Deep medium ruby. Multifaceted aromas of blackberry syrup, musky tobacco, game, chocolate and coffee are lifted by exotic flowers. Silky and seamless but at the same time vibrant and sharply delineated, with intense blue and black fruit flavors leavened by terrific floral grip. Finishes with serious, building tannins and outstanding energy and length. Very strong potential here.
