  • Rating: 78

    Tight, tannic and leathery, with a thin base of currant and cherry-scented flavors. Needs a shade more richness and depth to stand up to the tannins and oak. Try after 1996, but may always be tannic.

  • 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.
