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.
89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 1998
Dark red, less ruby than the above. Dusty black cherry and leather aromas. Very sweet in the mouth, but better acidity gives this wine a brighter, fruitier quality than the merlot. Also shows a firmer structure and more depth of flavor. Finishes with firm tannins. This also has a slightly rustic quality, but shows very good intensity of fruit.
