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.
