Fantastic new Joseph Phelps Napa Cabernet release.
92 Points Robert Parker: "The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa seems slightly richer, even though there is less Cabernet Sauvignon in it (78%), with 15% Merlot and the rest the other three Bordeaux varietals. This will spend 18 months in both French and American casks. The wine has a deep color, loads of glycerin, a plump, juicy, succulent mid-palate, and plenty of blue and black fruits in its flavor and finish. Drink it over the next 15+ years...
...This classic Napa winery has undergone a facelift after many, many years, but perhaps the biggest change has been the huge investment they’ve made in the area of Freestone on the Sonoma Coast. This is where they focus on Chardonnay and, to a bigger extent, Pinot Noir, and the early returns look promising."
