When Joseph Phelps releases this wine (only on superior surplus years) I make sure I buy plenty of it. You can find it out there for around $20 a bottle and I think it is one of the best $20 cabs money can buy. Phelps obviously has a marvelous pedigree from their Insignia blend. This cab is awesome.

Has a blueberry/chocolate scent. Dry berry flavor with a long, smoky finish.

I agree with the other reviews that say this is a great buy in the $20 range. This wine has a great structure and nice long finish. Smooth going down, great flavor and the tannins don't overpower.

Un excellent cabernet à conserver en cave. Au Québec, on ne le trouve qu'en importation privée à 35 $ mais il en vaut le plaisir, accompagné de pâtes ou de viande rouge.

I bought the 2007 vintage. I had to decant it for two + hours to get rid of the acidity. Once it was properly decanted, it was great. Long finish, silky smooth, just a hint of heat in the middle. Can't be sure of the fruits, but for sure one of them was plum. If I had paid more than $27.00 for this bottle I would have been disappointed, but since I only paid $24.99, I was pleased with it. If it is on sale again, I would buy it again.

Winemaker's Notes:

In years with high yields, selective blending often results in an Innisfree label. The 2005 Innisfree Cabernet was produced from extra fruit after the Insignia and Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon blends were created. This forward and approachable wine boasts aromas and flavors of mulled spices, red fruit, coffee and cedar, with a long, concentrated finish that lingers on the palate.
