Joseph Phelps – Insignia 2012 – Napa Valley

The nose is fruity, elegant, fine, aromatic and offers concentration. Beautiful expression! It reveals notes of cherry jam, blackberry, cassis and a touch of redcurrant associated with fine hints of cornflower (discreet) and a touch of coconut / wood. The mouth is nicely fruity, gourmand, elegant, incisive, beautifully balanced and offers an acid frame, a beautiful aromatic expression as well as a beautiful and unctuous matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, cassis, plum, blueberry cream and touches of cherry associated with slight notes of cherry, strawberry as well as discreet toasted hints, caramelization and a fine hint of hazelnut on the finish. The tannins are elegant and fine. Good length and persistence.
