2016 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon Release

2016 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon Release

Produced continuously since the 1973 vintage, we invite you to collect the latest vintage of Joseph Phelps Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

93 Points "Packed with vibrant black fruit laced with plenty of spicy sparks... framed by oodles of freshness." – ROBERT PARKER WINE ADVOCATE

Blend: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec and 2% Cabernet Franc from our vineyards in South Napa, Oak Knoll District, St. Helena, Rutherford and Stags Leap District.

Winemaker Notes: The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon 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.

94 Points "This has depth, detail and long, layered dark-fruit flavors. Impressively chiseled finish." – JAMES SUCKLING
