91-93pts Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate

The Joseph Phelps Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is silky and supple with intoxicatingly delicious fruit and floral notes, smooth tannins and an oh-so-long finish. It's ready to drink now, or be cellared until the right occasion, and it's a great price for a Napa Cab, let alone a Phelps Napa Cab... Don't let the posers on the web fool you; even if they have one or two, they don't offer free shipping on 6 bottles and the next thing you know, you're paying $6 more/bottle... Think bacon-wrapped anything as an appetizer to go with your first glasses. After that, it's beef, lamb, or pork, and even better if it's done on the grill or seared stovetop to get that caramelized sear which just makes the tannins sing. The spices and subtle earthiness of this Cali Cab is perfect for a lamb curry or tagine. Refill your glasses after the main course is done, and dive into a plum tart that's got a suggestion of star anise. The combo will stop you in your tracks. Cheers winelovers!

Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "Composed of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Malbec and 2% Cabernet Franc, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals vivacious notions of crushed black currants, red currant jelly, fresh blackberries and Morello cherries with touches of garrigue, bay leaves, damp soil and cedar chest. Medium-bodied, the palate is wonderfully elegant and charged with energy, featured loads of crunchy black and red fruit plus a refreshing backbone, finishing on an appealing chewy note." Oct 2019

Winery
: "The 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."
