    (includes 6% merlot and 2% petit verdot): Bright ruby-red. Aroma of cassis, mocha and Cuban cigar tobacco. Sweet and pliant in the mouth, with currant and black cherry fruit flavors complicated by tobacco, herbs and spicy oak. Quite suave in the middle. Finishes with firm but sweet tannins and excellent length. A very successful vintage for this bottling.

    Offers a mix of subtly jazzy creamy oak and firm red and dark berry fruit. Young and vibrant, this features slightly astringent tannins, ending on a drying note.

    The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is beautiful. Scents of pain grille, mocha, black currants, spices and plums emerge from this deep, resonant wine. The 2010 possesses stunning textural depth and richness, not to mention phenomenal overall balance. Readers who want to get a sense of the 2010 vintage without spending a huge amount of money may want to start here. This is a dazzling wine, especially within its price range. The 2010 is 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025.

    Dark purple color. Beautiful nose of plum and mocha and spice , followed by beautiful dry tannins that follow a medium to long finish. I might overuse the word but wonderfully chewy. Well done! Much less money than backus and insignia, but close in taste.

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.
