Joseph Phelps Vineyards Insignia Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2002

$379

The 2002 boasts an inky/purple color along with notes of graphite, violets, blackberries, creme de cassis and hints of charcoal and barbecue in addition to a full-bodied, multilayered mouthfeel that builds incrementally with great purity, staggering fruit concentration, and a long, velvety, 50+-second finish. This prodigious effort should continue to drink well for 20+ years. eRobertParker.com

Big, velvety and perfectly balanced. Rich red fruit, saddle leather and dried maraschino cherry. My WOTN.

Dark reddish tawny, opaque. Very perfumed. Notes of cherry, mocha, plums, moist earth and some leather. Rich and round in the mouth. Great finish. In a great drinking window.

Dark and opaque. Not showing much age. Black cherries and plums in the nose. Some pencil shavings. Rich and luscious fruit. Not overly complex. One dimensional but very enjoyable.

Young, bombastic, and what you expect from this wine. However, it has a lot of time left and will be even better in 5-10 years. Wine of the year in 2003 from Spectator and it holds up.
