2012 Joseph Phelps 'Backus' Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Premiere Napa Valley

Avg. Rating: 
(0)

The final vintage from the original old-vine block planted in 1975, this is a totem of winemaking history. Expressing pure, unadulterated Oakville fruit in the glass, the '12 Backus is simply the finest barrel lot we've ever tried from Joseph Phelps. There was no way we were going home without it. Care to be the envy of any and all Phelps enthusiasts? This chapter of history will never be repeated.

Joseph Phelps has long been one of Napa Valley’s stalwarts. For more than 30 years, they have been a pacesetter for critically acclaimed wines. As Robert Parker wrote of their flagship red, 'The Insignia cuvée has been one of Napa’s great Cabernet Sauvignon-based wines since its inception in 1974' and Wine Spectator observed that Phelps is 'one of Napa Valley's benchmark Cabernet Sauvignon producers.' Their focus is on world-class standards, top growers and meticulous cellar triage with Insignia seeing only the best components each year. Phelps has a web of vineyards that would make any winemaker excited to go to work. The winery has been working exclusively with estate-owned fruit sources since 2004, and their specific sites are exceptional. They know every nuance of the land and can conjure magic and bottle thunder. And as evidenced by the press for the 2008 Insignia, Phelps’ continued march towards exclusively estate-owned vineyards is paying handsome rewards.
