Insignia Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2013

Blend of 88% Cab Sauv, 5% Petit Verdot, 3% Merlot, 3% Malbec and 1% Cab Franc sourced from estate-owned vineyards, aged 24 months in 100% new French oak, their 40th vintage. Still tasting great, young and juicy, should easily last another couple of decades+ in the bottle. Deep Ruby, dark fruits, spice, complex nose. On the palate juicy rich berry fruits, vanilla oak. well structured harmonious wine. Fine soft rich tannins, long finish ending with fruit, tobacco and sweet earthy tones. Wow! — 2 days ago

Larry Hyde & Sons Vineyard Syrah 2013

Not my favorite Phelps Syrah. Not sure why…a bit rough around the edges…maybe older than I prefer???…I usually like this wine. — 13 days ago

Ontogeny Napa Valley Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 Ontogeny is Smokin’ value.!!! Russell Bevan Kicks Ass! Pahlmeyer Proprietary Red Wine & Joseph Phelps Insignia have gotten completely overpriced @ $200-250etc. Ontogeny at $95 is the Deal! Cheers 🍇🍷👍🏻👏🏻 — a month ago

Pastorale Vineyard Chardonnay 2020

Excellent Chardonnay. Smooth mouthfeel of apples, citrus, and a hint of oak. Delicious. — 2 months ago

Freestone Vineyards Pinot Noir 2018

Still evolving in the bottle and in a very good place. It’s got chops to go another 2-3 years imo, but please, drink and enjoy when you can, you don’t want your precious bottles auctioned off after your time here is done. — 21 days ago

Best Easter/Passover wine ever. So pure, delicately layered and with beautiful balance. Probably at its peak but no rush. — 2 months ago
