Joseph Phelps Insignia 2014 - 6 Bottles

Price: $1,599.00

 
Robert Parker “Classic 97” Tasting Notes:
“The fruit-forward, luscious, sexy and seductive 2014 Proprietary Red Insignia, a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot and the rest Malbec and Cabernet Franc, displays loads of blue and black fruits, licorice, graphite and vanilla. The wine is fruit-forward, low in acidity, with a voluptuous texture, super-purity and length. It should drink well for 25-30 years. Insignia has been one of the great Bordeaux blends made in California since the debut vintage in 1974. It usually has 30+ years aging potential, even in lighter vintages, of which the 2012, 2013 and 2014 are decidedly not.” - Wine Advocate #221
