  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 87

    ($40) Good medium ruby. Slightly stewy aromas of cassis, black cherry, plum and vanillin oak. A pliant wine with moderate texture and depth. Finishes with light, slightly dry tannins. Good but not special.

    A big attractive nose of milky oak, vanilla, and gushing cherry ? really attractive. Crisp on the palate but with a full oak-y presence. Drink now.

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.
