Joseph Phelps Vineyards

Joseph Phelps Vineyards

Das Sagen umwobene Weingut von Joseph Phelps mit seinen Lagen in Napa Valley und Sonoma County ist eines der renommiertesten und bekanntesten Weingüter der USA. Bekannt wurden die Weine in Europa sehr schnell durch den Insignia, die Top-Cuvée des Weinguts und die erste im Napa Valley erzeugte Bordeaux-Blend. Natürlich wurde die Bekanntheit durch die enorme Qualität, die das Weingut hervorbringt, noch gesteigert. Gegründet wurde das Weingut 1973 von Joseph Phelps persönlich und ist seit der Gründung durchgehend in Familienbesitz. Nicht leicht zu haben - und wenn man Weine von Phelps ergattern kann, liegen diese besser noch etwas im Keller und man wartet jeden Tag darauf, dass man sie endlich öffnen kann.

Joseph Phelps Insignia 2016
99 Punkte vom Wine Advocate für den Insignia 2016 von Joseph PhelpsVerkostungsnotiz von Lisa Perrotti-Brown vom 31. Oktober 2019:

Bottled in January 2019. the 2016 Insignia is a blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon. 10% Petit Verdot. 3% Cabernet Franc and 3% Malbec. aged for 24 months in 100% new French oak barrels. Deep garnet-purple colored. the nose is a little reticent to begin. needing a fair bit of coaxing to reveal beautifully beguiling notions of wild blueberries. warm blackberries. black currant cordial. cloves and cedar chest with nuances of camphor. yeast extract. charcuterie and candied violets. Medium to full-bodied. the palate has fantastic elegance and depth. revealing loads of subtle floral. black fruit and earthy layers with a firm. very finely grained texture and seamless freshness. finishing with epic length. 13.400 cases were made.

A barrel sample made up of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon. 10% Petit Verdot. 3% Cabernet Franc and 3% Malbec to be aged for 24 months in 100% new French oak. the 2016 Insignia Proprietary Red Wine has a deep garnet-purple color and is a little reticent at this still nascent stage (to be bottled in January 2019). opening out to reveal chocolate-covered cherries. wild blueberries and black raspberries with touches of underbrush. cedar chest and bouquet garni plus a hint of grilled meat. Medium to full-bodied. the palate springs forth with exciting energy. offering loads of red and black fruit layers and compelling herbal sparks. featuring a firm. fine-grained backbone and bags of freshness lifting the finish. 13.500 cases are expected to be made.

98 Punkte von James Suckling PlaketteVerkostungsnotiz von James Suckling vom 03. Mai 2019:

Lovely density and intensity with dark berries. blueberries and inky undertones with hints of spice. chocolate and walnuts. Medium to full body. fine tannins and a flavorful finish. The texture and length are fantastic here. Complex. Hints of smoky wood at the end. This needs three to five years more in bottle age. Exciting wine. Try after 2022.

97 Punkte vom Vinous-Team für den Joseph Phelps Insignia 2016Verkostungsnotiz von Antonio Galloni vom Januar 2020:

The 2016 Insignia has turned out beautifully. Silky. layered and positively striking. the 2016 is magnificent. In this vintage. Insignia is especially silky. refined and understated. which is unusual for this wine that has often been more bombastic. Readers will have to be patient with the 2016. as it needs at least several years in bottle to be at its very best. but this is all finesse and class.

Joseph Phelps Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 Napa Valley

96 Sucklingpunkte für den Joseph Phelps Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 Napa ValleyJames Suckling bewertet den Joseph Phelps Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 im März 2021:

Very pretty blackberry, blackcurrant, walnut, forest-flower and dark-walnut aromas follow through to a full body with round, juicy tannins that are fine-grained and beautiful. Lovely length and generosity, but reserved at the finish to give it tension. Mostly from the Soscol vineyard. 97% cabernet sauvignon. Drink or hold.
