2007 Joseph Phelps Insignia
Small Parcel - Outstanding Pricing

"I would not be surprised to see it become the greatest Insignia to date." - Robert Parker

Parker doesn't mince words, and I won't either: We're Burgundy fanatics with a serious Côte d'Or obsession. But at the same time, I can't pass up a deal on a simply iconic, time-tested wine - especially with cold weather, the holidays and strong cravings for steak and red wine just around the corner.

So today we present a small, sharply priced parcel of what may very well become the greatest Insignia in this wine's illustrious history: 2007 Joseph Phelps Insignia at $169.95. Parker's full rave is here:

The 2007 Insignia (a 13,500-case blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, and 4% Petit Verdot) offers a seamless introduction to this flagship cuvee. Its inky/purple color is followed by aromas of creme de cassis, incense, crushed rocks, lead pencil shavings, cedar, and spice box. It possesses a massive, opulent mouthfeel, serious tannins, and no hard edges. This stunning effort should hit its peak in 5-8 years, and last 40 years. I would not be surprised to see it become the greatest Insignia to date and close in on a perfect score.

If Parker's review is anywhere close to being true, this is destined to become a California cornerstone of the serious and well-rounded cellar: This is one of the benchmarks of the Napa Valley, and the 2007 was an incredible vintage that is lined up to become a legend.
