Good dark ruby-red. Aromas of wild berries, smoked meat and minerals. Tight and sappy in the mouth, with firm acids giving shape to the rather wild flavors of berries, spices, minerals, cola and mocha. This conveys an impression of solid extract and finishes with substantial sweet tannins and very good freshness and length. A first release that showcases the considerable potential of Phelps' Freestone site. This is a selection of the best lots; there is also a second bottling under the Fog Dog label.

Fragrant black cherry, floral and spice aromas are tight and focused on the palate, with a delicate edge to the earth and pebble notes.

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.
