Reviews for 1978 Phelps, Joseph Insignia Proprietary Red Wine

WS 93
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, November 1998

Complex with an intriguing array of flavors ranging from ripe stewed plum to herb sage tobacco cedar and spice. Turns elegant on the finish where the tannins are soft and mellow. Judging from this and two other recent tastings this wine is best enjoyed now through 2000. A blend: 50 Percent Cabernet Sauvignon 30 percent Merlot and 20 percent Cabernet Franc.--1978 California Cabernet retrospective. Drink now through 2000. –JL
