2017 Joseph Phelps

Grapes Cab Sauv, Petit Verdot, Syrah, Malbec, Cab Franc
Colour Red
Origin USA, California
District Napa Valley
ABV 14.5%

Very aromatic with blueberries and blackcurrants, as well as red licorice. Floral, too. Medium-to full-bodied, firm and lightly chewy. Lovely depth of fruit here. Rich and flavorful. Extremely well done for the vintage. Shows more finesse and tightness than 2016. Very classic. One-third of the production. Try it. Drink after 2022, but already delicious.

The 2017 sashays out of the glass with open-knit, alluring baked plums, stewed cherries, mulberries and warm cassis with hints of spice cake, cracked pepper and tobacco leaf. The palate delivers a great intensity of black berry and exotic spice layers, framed by soft tannins and lively freshness, finishing with impressive length Rating: 91 Lisa Perrotti-Brown, RobertParker.com (Sep 2020)

Offers a chunky feel, featuring a mix of dark plum and black currant fruit, with singed mesquite, dried bay leaf, sage and licorice root notes. Shows youthful rambunctiousness, balanced by good underlying structure and ample fruit.Should resolve easily with cellaring. Drinking range: 2022 - 2034 Rating: 92 James Molesworth, The Wine Spectator (Sep 2020)

This is a beautiful wine, effusive in cassis, black cherry, woody cedar and sage... it offers substantial structure and tannin weight, with ample clove spice and toasted oak. It is built to age. Rating: 95 The Wine Enthusiast www.winemag.com (Sep 2020)

Joseph Phelps

'Joseph Phelps was one of the great visionaries of Napa Valley. His legacy is one of extraordinary quality. He was one of the first to see the merit in blending, which his legendary Insignia, which first debuted in 1974, has proven year after year. It remains one of the world’s finest Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated blends.' Robert M. Parker, Jr. www.RobertParker.com
