Joseph Phelps Insignia 1995 is a stunning Bordeauxinspired Californian red. Insignia has been on a roll since 1990 - rich and ripe and aged oak barrels for 22 months - a powerful Napa Valley classic.

Jospeh Phelps was a building contractor from Colorado who invested in vineyards in the Napa Valley in 1972, and in 1974 he made the very first vintage of Insignia, which at the time was one of the first Bordeaux style blends in California.

”A wine of great intensity and richness, it displays classic notes of licorice, barbecue smoke, creme de cassis, cedarwood and forest floor. Full-bodied with sensational purity, a multidimensional mouthfeel and a long, voluptuous finish with no hard edges, it has only reached mid-adolescence, and has at least two decades of life ahead of it. Joseph Phelps is doing a phenomenal job with their Insignia.” Robert Parker
