Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | 90

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.

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.

Drink Dates: 1999+

About This Producer

Since its founding in 1972, Joseph Phelps Vineyards has been on the cutting edge of many California wine developments. From the Bordeaux-blend Insignia, first made in 1974 and Wine Spectator's wine of the year for the 2002 vintage; to the resurrection of California Syrah, also first produced in 1974, the winery has earned critical acclaim for its many estate-grown wines.
