Details
In the right hands, wines made from the cabernet sauvignon grape can be truly unforgettable – and this 2021 vintage from Napa Valley stalwart Joseph Phelps is perfect proof of that. Focused and concentrated with a youthful energy and freshness that's deftly balanced by supple tannin structure and finesse, it's delicious to drink right now but promises to be even more enjoyable after a few years in the cellar.
A classic Napa Valley cabernet sauvignon, it's full-bodied with impressive length, packed with aromas of violet, dark fruit and tobacco, and delivers a great intensity of blackberry and exotic spice layers, framed by soft tannins and a lively freshness.
