Joseph Phelps Insignia Napa Valley 2015

Intense, Dense, Velvet

Insignia is one of the most icon­ic wines in Napa Val­ley, a critic’s favorite for almost forty years. Its heady and dense, but beau­ti­ful­ly bal­anced at once.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

The 2015 Insignia comes from a low-yield­ing har­vest of high-qual­i­ty fruit. It is a deeply pur­ple-red col­or with the aro­ma of rich dark fruit, cocoa pow­der, and fra­grant dried flow­ers. It is vel­vety in tex­ture and weighty on the palate, with a high-toned flo­ral bal­ance on a back­drop of ripe tan­nins. Its tast­ing notes are com­posed of black­ber­ry and dark plum laced with Mada­gas­car vanil­la and berg­amot. Bold and creamy, it is a sup­ple wine with a lengthy finish.

PAIR­INGS

This heav­en­ly Insignia vin­tage pairs best with hearty, heavy meals. From a well-cooked sir­loin steak to lamb chops, to game meats like deer, veni­son, or quail, it makes a beau­ti­ful din­ner drink. A hefty por­tion of roast chick­en or duck in a port reduc­tion would also be a good part­ner for this wine. It goes with cool­er sea­son veg­eta­bles like car­rots and potatoes.

CAL­I­FORN­IAN DISTINCTION

The Joseph Phelps estate vine­yard has been ded­i­cat­ed to pro­duc­ing wines of qual­i­ty and char­ac­ter since the 1970s. The Insignia is their flag­ship wine, with forty vin­tages under its belt. Its vin­tages have won ​“Wine of the Year” from Wine Spec­ta­tor and 100-point scores from Robert Park­er Wine Advo­cate. Though Joseph Phelps now car­ries wines rang­ing from Ries­lings to Delice, it’s Insignia Bor­deaux-style red has been called ​“one of the world’s finest Caber­net Sauvi­gnon-dom­i­nat­ed blends”.
