    ($45) Good deep ruby-red. Sexy aromas of cassis, game, licorice and gingerbread. Fresh and spicy, with noteworthy intensity and definition to the dark fruit, mineral and floral flavors. Firmly built syrah, in need of a year or so of patience.

    Drank with Tisa and Gunther over spring break. Very Nice! Good color and full body. Nice fruit flavors and soft. This wine could have aged another year or so with out a problem. Very enjoyable!

    very impressive; inky purple color; very lively & vibrant with explosive fruit and wonderful mid-palate. Peppery currant flavors and black fruits

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.
