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.
91-93 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 1999
Bright deep ruby. Aromas of dark chocolate, mint, graphite and tar show an almost roasted ripeness. Large-scaled and sweet in the middle, but very backward today. A much more muscular style than the '97 Insignia. Finishes with major chewy tannins and excellent persistence.
