Winemaker Notes

As with the other red wines we produced in 1997, this wine exhibits remarkable texture and length. The complexity of aromas and flavors is a product of blending different grape varieties from different regions or terroirs, and this years blend combines spicy, floral aromas with black fruit flavors and ripe tannins.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Ripe and plummy, with spice, earth, tar, black cherry and leather notes, turning complex and polished. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre, Petite Sirah and Alicante Bouschet.

Video of winery

Joseph Phelps Vineyards is a family-owned winery committed to crafting world class, estate-grown wines. Founded in 1973 when Joe Phelps purchased a former cattle ranch near St. Helena in the Napa Valley, the winery now controls and farms nearly 375 acres of vines on eight estate vineyards in St. Helena, the Stags Leap District, Oakville, Rutherford, Oak Knoll District, Carneros and South Napa Valley. In 1999, the Phelps family added 100 acres of vineyard property near the town of Freestone on the Sonoma Coast, where Phelps now grows Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Phelps is best known for its flagship Napa Valley blend of red Bordeaux varietals, Insignia, first produced in 1974. Awarded Wine Spectator's "Wine of the Year" in 2005, Insignia is widely regarded as a qualitative benchmark for California winemaking.
