Joseph Phelps Insignia 2012

2012 Joseph Phelps Insignia Napa Valley Estate Grown Red Wine.

96 Points, Robert Parker, Wine Advocate. "Inky purple to the rim, with notes of lead pencil shavings, incense, camphor, blackberry and creme de cassis, the wine is full-bodied, offering a multi-layered, textural, skyscraper-like mouthfeel, terrific purity, density and richness. This is a beauty to drink now and over the next 30 years."

97 Points, James Suckling. Top 100 Wines of 2015. "Amazing aromas of blueberry, blackberry, mineral and bark. Complex nose. Full body plus super integrated tannins with superb balance and depth. Coffee and chocolate too. Very long and mind-bending. A tribute to the vintage. A long life ahead of it."

96 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous. "Raspberry jam, mocha, wild flowers, spices and espresso are laced together in a sensual, enveloping Insignia that should drink well with minimal cellaring. I imagine the 2012 will reward readers with a long drinking window of pure pleasure. Today, it is a total knock-out."
