Joseph Phelps Cabernet Sauvignon (750ml)
Today the Phelps family owns and farms 425 acres of vines in Napa Valley on nine estate vineyards in St. Helena, Rutherford, Oakville, Stags Leap District, Oak Knoll District, South Napa and Carneros. Strategically chosen over many decades, each vineyard has its own personality and brings a different characteristic to the wines. At Joseph Phelps Vineyards, the philosophy is to maintain, preserve and (where possible and appropriate) ecologically enhance the natural vineyard environment. Beginning in 1974 was a period of unparalleled activity, creativity, ingenuity, entrepreneurship and risk-taking that put Joe Phelps on the map of top Napa Valley wine producers.
This latest bottling highlights beautiful aromatics of dark fruit, cigar box, dried herbs, graphite notes and pain grille. Expressive Bing cherry, licorice, blueberry and blackberry layer this silky smooth wine of great depth and personality. Richly nuanced with supple tannins and a lingering velvety finish.
Produced continually since 1973. A blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Malbec, 1% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc.
