Joseph Phelps Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Innisfree 2007
Deep black cherry fruit that evolves into currant and a hint of crème de cassis that is followed by notes of coffee and chocolate. This has Napa Valley Cabernet written all over it and is exceptional right from the start. After two years, we have Innisfree back and it comes from the AMAZING 2007 Vintage! In case you missed it the 2007 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage as a whole was just award 99 points by Wine Spectator. Plus Joseph Phelps track record thus far in 2007 is STELLAR… Insignia 2007 ($189 / bottle) 97-100 Robert Parker / 96 Wine Spectator “…. I would not be surprised to see it become the greatest Insignia to date and close in on a perfect score."

Wine is on unbeliveable. Great from first glass to the end of the bottle. What a great find
Lovely wine...happy anniversary to my husband~
I bought two bottles at the same store at the same time, both were the Innisfree Cab, vintage was 2007. The first bottle was awesome, I waited ONE week to open the second one because I enjoyed the first one so much! Let me just add here that the temp inside my house is always kept at 76 degrees and this second bottle was kept at room temp until I opened it and I noticed that some wine had seeped through part of the cork. Knowing that not all damaged corks make for a bad bottle of wine, I poured it and took a sip. Sadly, this bottle wasn't quite as good, but it was still drinkable. I will buy this wine again and pray that the next cork is not damaged.
Three and a half glasses
