Reviews for 1997 Phelps, Joseph Napa Cabernet Sauvignon

IWC 90
Stephen Tanzer's IWC - Stephen Tanzer's IWC, June 1999
More floral aromas of black raspberry and clove. Supple and sweet on the palate; like the '96 juicy but not especially dense. Finishes with substantial but even tannins. 88-90 points
WE 90

Full black-currant aromas with some briar and dust. Blackberry fruit on the palate but most of all lots of charred oak manifested as coffee and bitter chocolate. In golf this would be a middle-of-the fairway drive but... Full black-currant aromas with some briar and dust. Blackberry fruit on the palate but most of all lots of charred oak manifested as coffee and bitter chocolate. In golf this would be a middle-of-the fairway drive but without the distance. It's fresh and well made.
