Wine Spectator | Rating: 81Mature but balanced, with hints of dried currant, leather, floral and spice notes, though it veers to dryness on the finish.Author: James Laube
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.
