Product Overview

The 2016 Joseph Phelps Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the winery's vineyards in South Napa, Oak Knoll District, St. Helena, Rutherford, and Stags Leap District. It is ultra-concentrated with dense black fruit, anise, roasted coffee, ripe blueberries, cedar box and graphite. A fresh and focused wine with creamy texture and a long luscious mouth feel with dusty earth, baking spices, sweet vanilla and fresh fig notes.

Varietal Composition: 86 Cabernet Sauvignon, 7 Merlot, 3 Petit Verdot, 2 Malbec, 2 Cabernet Franc
Appellation: Napa Valley AVA
Aging; 18 months in French and American oak, 48 percent new

93 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is made up of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec and 2% Cabernet Franc aged for 18 months in 48% new French and American oak and bottled in May/June of 2018. Deep garnet-purple colored, it sings of crushed blackcurrants, blackberry pie and blueberry compote with suggestions of cigar box, menthol, rose hip tea and baking spices. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with vibrant black fruit laced with plenty of spicy sparks, framed by grainy tannins and oodles of freshness and finishing long with a menthol kick. 36,000 cases produced." -LPB, 12/13/18

92 Points - Vinous
"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is once again a huge overachiever. Plum, black cherry, spice, mocha and new leather are front and center. Pliant and giving, with striking purity of fruit and remarkable balance, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is a winner from Phelps. This Napa Valley Cabernet is a remarkable wine for many reasons, most notably the quality Phelps achieves with estate fruit and a production of 36,000 cases." -AG, Dec/2018
