Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 81

As a long-time follower and admirer of Joseph Phelps Cabernets, I have been extremely disappointed by vintages since 1987. In fact, the 1987s, which were so promising from the barrel, had absolutely no bouquets when they were released. They appeared to have been sterile filtered and/or excessively processed at bottling, removing much of the richness they had possessed in the barrel.

Still unyielding at age 10. Firm, dark andintense, chunky and chewy, with gritty tanninswrapped around a core of stewed plum and blackcherry, with dashes of mineral and sage. Turns dryand tannic, but offers lots of substance and depth.--California Cabernetretrospective. 5,725 cases made.

Great deep dark colored wine with little evidence of aging. The wine?s bouquet displays cherry, cedar, slight smoke, herb, and sandalwood. Lots of olive in the mouth with excellent length. A dead ringer for a second growth St. Julien.
