"Impeccable elegance characterizes this vintage of the producer's marquee Bordeaux-style blend, an expert finessing of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petit Verdot, 4% Malbec, 2% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc. Juicy in exotic black fruit, it stands tall, with silky, towering shoulders of herb, cardamom and clove that will coalesce beautifully over time. Hold through 2026." 96pts WE Cellar Selection

Joseph Phelps was running one of the largest construction companies in the U.S. when in the early 70s he won bids to build a few wineries in Northern California. He quickly made the transition from builder to owner and winemaker. Five decades later, his flagship wine, Insignia, is recognized as one of the world's great wines and has a dedicated following among wine enthusiasts and collectors. The winery owns eight vineyards on prime soil throughout the Napa Valley in districts such as Stag's Leap, Oakville, Rutherford, Carneros and St. Helena. The grapes for Insignia come from the best pickings from these plots and as such constitute a kind of ultimate expression of general Napa Valley terroir.
