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.
93 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 1998
Very saturated ruby-red. Perfumed, altogether finer aromas of black fruits, violet, licorice and toffee; whiff of animal fur. Lovely, mouthfilling dark berry flavors are given shape and freshness by lively acids. Rather large structure and impressive sweetness of fruit for the vintage. Finishes quite fine and long, with lovely, even tannins. This is superb, and may ultimately equal the '94, which I rated 93 in a recent tasting.
