  • 2001 Joseph Phelps Insignia – USA, California, Napa Valley (1/16/2017)
    WIML94+

    Tasted non blind.

    Dark garnet to almost purple looking in the glass, clear looking throughout. Still a fairly huge nose of boysenberry, black raspberry jam and sweet dark plums with a little added floral notes drifting underneath. Rich and full flavors of dried plums, raspberries and dark chocolate covered cherries. Medium acidity, medium to firm tannin, full bodied. Drink or hold. I’d lean toward drinking over the next 3-4 years with just a little bit of air time before serving. (94 points)
