Winemaker Notes

Striking in appearance, with its dark ruby color, the 2015 Steady State is immediately seductive. Very focused macerated black cherry, graphite, vanilla and forest floor aromas balance each other nicely. While the tannins have heft, they are also mouth-coating, sweet, round and quite elegant, giving way to flavors of ripe blackberry, balsam, a bit of camphor and espresso bean throughout the lingering finish. 2015 Steady State, while light on its feet, has staying power. It is a luxurious wine that, while superbly enjoyable now, will continue to age gracefully for at least 6-10 years.

Blend: 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec, 7% Cabernet Franc, 6% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot

Deep color; polished and succulent with dense structure and notes of plum and chocolate. With its lush body and round flavors, this wine proves Josh Phelps’ new label is packed with hits. 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec, 7% Cabernet Franc, 6% Merlot, and 6% Petit Verdot.

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
The debut of Napa native winemaker and entrepreneur Josh Phelps' own label, this is a blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec, 7% Cabernet Franc, 6% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot. It delivers tremendous value for the quality, a mix of chocolate-covered cherry, blueberry and vanilla cola wrapped in smooth, seductive layers of robust elegance. Tobacco, pencil shavings and cigar box add alluring seasoning.

Grounded Wine Co. Josh Phelps Winery Image

Named a “rising star” by Food & Wine, and a Forbes’ ‘30 Under 30’ to watch, Napa native Josh Phelps has winemaking in his blood. Josh built up an immense knowledge of the wine business through harvest work and crafting wines alongside his father—former Dominus Estate and Caymus winemaker Chris Phelps. It was Josh’s own desire to create a grassroots, all-American label that reflected his experience growing up among California vines that led to the creation of Grounded Wine Co. With Grounded, Phelps maintains a focus on what’s important in winemaking—showcasing wines crafted from premium grapes farmed by trusted, sustainable vineyards in California and Washington. Grounded showcases Phelps’ expression of what it means to be a winemaker in the modern world.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
