"The 2007 Insignia (a blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot and 4%Petit Verdot) looks to be one of the greatest wines yet produced atthis historic winery. Beautiful aromas of creme de cassis and flowersjump from the glass of this dense purple-colored effort. Sweet oak ispresent, but it is pushed to the background by the wine’s extravagantwealth of fruit and full-bodied power. This is finesse and flavorauthority put into a classic Napa Valley Cabernet with a seamlessintegration of all its component parts. Already complex andapproachable, it should evolve for three decades or more, but who canresist it now? It is a staggering, complex expression of Napaviticulture. Anticipated maturity: now-2030. Another great success forPhelps, the 2007 and 2008 Insignias may be the best back-to-backvintages they have produced since 1995 and 1994. The 2008 has sometannins to resolve whereas the 2007 has already assimilated them.

JosephPhelps’ flagship wine, which they have been making for 36 years, is theInsignia, which boasts a remarkable track record. Phelps, always avisionary, was the first to recognize that a blend of grapes could bebetter than a single varietal cuvee. Phelps produces a 100% CabernetSauvignon from the Backus Vineyard situated on the eastern slopes ofthe Oakville Corridor overlooking Screaming Eagle and Rudd Estate"
