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.
90-93 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 1998
Slightly less dark than the Insignia. Black fruits, chocolate, mint and a hint of rust on the nose. Big, rich and sweeter than the last sample. Powerful extract and density gives this wine the sheer flesh to cover its firm structure and support its chewy tannins. Very long on the aftertaste.
