JOSEPH PHELPS 2010 PROPRIETARY RED "INSIGNIA" NAPA VALLEY 750mL

The Insignia bottling by Joseph Phelps has always been at the top of the critic's list since day one. Moreover, it is a staple of any fine restaurant or resort. It routinely receives lofty scores, and the 2002 was even given the honor of becoming Wine Spectator's Top Wine of the Year!

With the winery moving more and more towards sustainable farming, the grapes become healthier, and the wine goes from strength to strength! For 2010, grapes came from estate vineyards up and down the Napa Valley, and the wine was aged for 24 months in 100% new French oak barrels. This is a very age worthy wine that seems to always show well right out of the gate.

WINE SPECTATOR 94 POINTS - "Firm, dense and deeply concentrated, this offers a powerful thrust of flavors, with mocha- and espresso-laced blackberry, black licorice and cedar notes, revving up on the finish. Pure, driven and persistent, this seems set for a long life. Best to cellar. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec. Best from 2015 through 2028"

ROBERT PARKER 93-95 POINTS! - “The 2010 Insignia is striking. Cool, mineral notes frame a core of blue and black fruit, licorice, spices, smoke, and melted road tar as this stunning wine opens up in the glass. Totally alive in the glass, the 2010 captures the essence of this cold, late harvest. Hints of menthol, violets and crushed rocks all flow through to the incisive, vibrant finish. My sense is that the 2010 is still holding back much of its significant potential. The 2010 is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, 3% Merlot and 2% Malbec. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2030.”
