JOSEPH PHELPS NAPA VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON, CALIFORNIA 2019
Varietals: 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Merlot, 1% Malbec
Region: Napa Valley
Tastes Like: Second only to their own Insignia, Joseph Phelps' Cabernet is Napa in a glass. The quintessential Napa/Bordeaux blend gives this wine juicy fruits, red, purple and lush. To some, an entry-level Phelps; to others, the perfect Phelps experience without dropping $250+, the Cabernet Sauvignon is superb in every way.
Pairs With: Huge juicy steaks or burgers. Or sitting near a fire pit. Or both!
What the Pros Say: Jeb Dunnuck - 93 Points: " A year-in, year-out winner, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley should easily be an outstanding wine capable of evolving for two decades or so. Deep ruby/purple, with classy notes of cassis, blackberries, green tobacco, cedary herbs, and flowers, it's medium to full-bodied and has a wonderfully elegant, seamless texture, supple tannins, and outstanding length."
