Wine Review: This Napa Cabernet from Joseph Phelps is more of a Bordeaux style, than CA styled wine. It is midnight purple colored and opens with a flinty mineral and cassis bouquet with a hint of eucalyptus. On the palate, this wine is full bodied and balanced. The flavor profile is forward black currant with notes of oak. We also detected hints of black coffee and a touch of minerality. The finish is dry and its well-managed tannins stick around for quite a while. The Panel suggested pairing the Cab with New York strip steak. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The Cabernet Sauvignon from the 2015 vintage is inky purple in color with aromas of dense blackberry jam, cassis and balsamic followed by a layering complexity throughout the mouthfeel of supple, sweet tannins with expressive ripe plum, vanilla and rich black fruit.
