97-100 Point 2015 Insignia at HDH Retail

After running one of the largest construction companies in the U.S. for several years, the late Joseph Phelps made a career change and founded the eponymous winery in 1973. Over four decades later, the flagship wine, Insignia, is recognized as one of Napa’s great wines. The Bordeaux-style blend was one of the first of its kind as most California wines were single-varietal at the time of its creation. Insignia is blended from the finest grapes each vintage, making it consistently excellent year after year. We have the superb 2015 vintage of the wine available – don’t miss the chance to add it to your collection.

Joseph Phelps Vineyards Red Wine, Insignia

2015 (97-100 WA) $209 per bottle | $539 per magnum
“A barrel sample blended of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Malbec coming from six vineyards and reared in 100% new French oak, the 2015 Insignia Proprietary Red Wine has a very deep inky-purple color and nose of crushed red and black currants, blackberry pie and plums with hints of dried herbs, sandalwood, spice box and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers a knock-out core of intense, energetic fruit with chewy tannins and a lively backbone, finishing with epic length and freshness. 12,500 cases are expected to be bottled.” Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #233, October 2017
