Details
Joseph Phelps Insignia – its blend changing every year depending on the conditions of the season and the intuition of the winemaker – is among the Napa Valley's most sought-after wines, and when you taste the 2019 vintage it’s easy to see why.
This rich Bordeaux-style blend features a significant portion of cabernet sauvignon and is complex and long-lasting, full-bodied and approachable. It can be enjoyed now or has the potential to age for decades.

BLEND & ORIGIN WINES

BLEND AND ORIGIN:
Joseph Phelps Insignia 2019

Insignia is 100% estate grown, and a blend of the best wine lots from Joseph Phelps vineyards in St Helena, Rutherford, Oakville, the Stags Leap District, the Oak Knoll District and South Napa Valley.
 

The 2019 Insignia is the first vintage to include fruit from the new Joseph Phelps vineyard, El Venadito, which is located in the Oak Knoll District, just south of the winery’s Yountville Vineyard.
 

The final blend comprises 93% cabernet sauvignon, 5% petit verdot and 2% malbec.
 

The wine is aged for 24 months in 100% new French oak barrels, which helps to tame the tannins and increase its ageability.
