Review a new wine!
  2004 - Phelps, Joseph Insignia Proprietary Red Wine
 Nov 21, 2008

1 star 1 star 1 star 1 star 1 star

 

This wine is delicious.  Phelps once again demonstrates why each year they are the best large winery in the Napa Valley.  It  has a dense ruby purplish color with a nose of cassis, locorice, smoke and spice.  The tannins ar supple.  It is full bodied.  Drink it now or hold for 10+ years.

  1999 - Haut Brion 
 Nov 21, 2008

1 star 1 star 1 star 1 star 1 star

 An Haut Brion that can be had for a reasonable price.  I tasted plum and currant. The wine is medium to full-bodied and very elegant.  The finish is long.  This wine is ready to drink or hold for another 10 years.
