Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Very well balanced and complete. Blueberry pie, tobacco, spice, and puckering tannins. I think this label was one of the best buys in Napa when it was $60 - $80 a bottle. I got a few vintages at Costco for $60 / bottle and stocked up. Now at $110+ I’ll just get one or two and wait as time seems to really help these. — 9 days ago

Estate Grown St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Basically…disappointed. We were ready for a big Cab but this was a bit of a dud. Limited finish and also did not develop much on the palate. 9 years old had expected layers of leather, cigar etc but none of that. Mostly single note and lack of vibrancy. What should I do with the other two bottles I have?? — 2 days ago

Insignia Estate Grown Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1995

1995 vintage. Decanted and tasted after 1 hour. Still, big nose and frontal palate. Dwindles somewhat in the closing chapters. Fairly harmonious and alive for the majority of another decade. Feel there could be some bottle variation here so wouldn’t surprise me if someone posted a 9.2-9.4 tomorrow. S’life. 9.20.23. — 3 months ago

Estate Grown Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Hello my friends and fellow wine lovers! The wine tonight is: Joseph Phelps cabernet sauvignon 2019. Black pepper and blackberry pie fresh out if the oven on the nose. At 14.5% abv, the palate begins with a thick rich dark berry and vanilla explosion. Then comes the black pepper, spice and everything nice. There is oak, a hint of cedar, cigar box, and graphite. Wow!!!! This is followed by an amazing hint of dark chocolate and mor graphite. This is a very mineral rich wine.  The finish is so dry my tongue and lips won’t open.  I have to have another sip immediately.!!!! This is by far the best wine I’ve had this year!! — 4 months ago
