2015 Joseph Phelps Ovation Sparking Wine
Long-established Napa label Joseph Phelps first produced this wine in still form back in the 1990s, but when the vineyard’s eponymous owner passed away five years ago, his family turned the wine into a sparkling iteration (80% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Noir) in his honor. This premium, age-worthy wine’s branding offers a black backdrop that references Phelps’s legacy, with an image of a grape tendril growing around a wire guide (the trellising system used to guide growing grapes).

Tasting Notes: Peach, vanilla, brioche
