Joseph Phelps Vineyards Backus Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 1994

Ratings on Delectable

James Forsyth Delectable Pro

A little bit flat, the 1994 Phelps Backus has seen its best days. Took a little time to open up and a fine licorice note rose to prominence. Black current and leather, dried plums and autumn leaves. It's dark and a touch heavy. Maybe it isn't at its best but what a privilege to try this wine with some age.
