Wine & Spirits Top 100 Wineries of the Year | Joseph Phelps Vineyards
Joseph Phelps Vineyards is thrilled to be named one of Wine & Spirits Magazine's Top 100 Wineries of the Year. In particular, 2013 Insignia was singled out as a top-scoring wine by the magazine's editors:
95 points - 2013 Joseph Phelps Insignia, Napa Valley ~ 40th Vintage
"Insignia has been built as a regional blend since its first vintage in 1974, becoming an estate-grown wine in 2004. Ashley Hepworth has fine-tuned the style, so Insignia is still a rich wine, but now, especially in 2013, shows the kind of firmness of structure that makes the richness profound. This vintage is fresh and lively, even while it is dense and powerful, as if the power is coming out of the black raspberry fruit as well as the bright, sparkling-fresh mineral tones of the tannins. Delicious now if you give it several hours in a decanter, this is destined to evolve into a classic." (Oct. 2016)
We look forward to celebrating this achievement during the magazine's 13th Annual Top 100 Tasting on October 10th in San Francisco, CA. We hope to see you there. Complete details & tickets.
