Joseph Phelps Cabernet Sauvignon 2017. 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 mouthfeel with dusty earth, baking spices, sweet vanilla, and fresh fig notes.
Blend: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec, and 2% Cabernet Franc. This shows wonderful density and texture with ripe tannins, as well as tangy acidity underneath.
Full-bodied, yet tight and composed. The 2016 vintage could easily become my top wine in this price quadrant. TASTING NOTES: This wine hits all of the high notes.
Its aromas and flavors of black fruits, dust, mint stay long and inviting on the palate. Pair it with a grilled extra thick pork chop and have a great dinner. (Tasted: March 1, 2019, San Francisco, CA).Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is made up of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec and 2% Cabernet Franc aged for 18 months in 48% new French and American oak and bottled in May/June of 2018. Deep garnet-purple colored, it sings of crushed blackcurrants, blackberry pie and blueberry compote with suggestions of cigar box, menthol, rose hip tea and baking spices. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with vibrant black fruit laced with plenty of spicy sparks, framed by grainy tannins and oodles of freshness and finishing long with a menthol kick. This lovely wine shows exceptional quality and complexity within a bold, expansive package of thick, grippy tannin and layered flavors of blackberry, tobacco and smoked meat. It is blended with 7% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% each of Malbec and Petit Verdot. Moving to the Cabernet releases, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley comes from seven different estate vineyards and was brought up in a mix of French and American oak.
Its a seamless, pretty, medium-bodied effort that has plenty of complexity in its Bordeaux-like bouquet of cassis, leafy herbs, green tobacco, and violets. Drink it over the coming 15+ years.
