Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 97

Joseph Phelps' 1991 Cabernet Sauvignon releases all have been immensely impressive. The Backus Vineyard offering exhibits an opaque purple color, and a huge nose of cassis, mint, licorice, and toasty oak. Full-bodied, with great flavor extraction, this wine possesses an inner-core of fruit, lovely suppleness from the sweetness of the tannin, and a long, rich, authoritative finish.

Wine Spectator

A bare-knuckled, hard-edged, dark and inky wine. Packed with chewy, tannic plum and cherry flavors. This is big and powerful, probably needing a decade to mature and soften. And even then it will be on the brutish side.
