External Reviews for Joseph Phelps Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Backus Vineyard
Wine Advocate ReviewThe 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Backus Vineyard may ultimately be as good, perhaps even better than the 2002. Its dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by a sumptuous bouquet of white flowers, blackberries, blueberries, a Graves-like scorched earth character (creosote, hot rocks, whatever), and a huge, opulent, full-bodied finish with profound richness, depth, and persistence. The good news is there are 1,300 cases of this amazing wine. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2025.
The 2003 Backus Cabernet is saturated in color with a dark purple, ruby red hue. The aromas of mocha, minerality, black fruits and graphite are characteristic of this unique, grand cru vineyard in the Oakville appellation. The incredible nose is framed by robust tannins, bright fruit flavors and subtle French oak notes, with a depth and concentration that follows through on the palate.
