This is a great Napa Cab for this price. It is not as complex or long as more expensive bottles but it is a great example of the classic Napa notes for around $20. There are notes of bright cherry fruit, vanilla , and rasberry. There is a lot of fruit up front but that fades quickly into well rounded tannins and a short finish.

One of the best cab savs I've had in the 20-30 price range! Excellent body with a wonderful expansive wine that's full bodied with flavors of cherry (mostly black) and some berry.

a great value - a bit smoother than many Napa Cabs but not without interest. It's neither complex nor bring. And it unlike so many other Napa Cabs drinks pretty well right out of the bottle. I bought two cases.

Good ruby-red. Pure but subdued nose hints at blackberry and cassis. High-pitched, juicy and concentrated, with very primary flavors of black fruits and eucalyptus. Firm and persistent on the end. More structured than the 2003 example.

The chunkier 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon does not possess the depth of fruit of its older sibling, offering roasted herb and black currant notes along with moderate tannin and structure. Although very good, it is not as seamlessly put together as the 2002. It should drink well for 7-8 years.

The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon is an elegant, dark ruby-hued medium-bodied effort offering aromas of earth, berry fruit, herbs, and spice. It reflects this vintage, which has produced very good Cabernets, although they have not reached the pinnacles of the finest 2002s and 2001s.

Shows the deft Phelps tough in the softly complex texture whose tannins are just as velvety as they come, and the ripe, pure fruit. The blackberry, cassis and red cherry flavors are enriched with vanilla and toast from oak. Drink this fine Cabernet now through 2008.

Shows the deft Phelps Cabernet touch, with softly complex tannins that frame ripe blackberry, cherry, spice and new oak flavors. So easy to like, you might not even notice the complexities of structure that keep you reaching for another sip. Drink now.

Good deep ruby-red. Blackcurrant syrup, menthol and nutty oak on the nose. Rich, creamy and very ripe, with high-toned black fruit flavors nicely framed by sound acidity. Quite substantial for this bottling. Finishes with building tannins and a sizable structure. This has turned out well.


External Review

An elegant style, with ripe, vibrant currant and black cherry fruit that's well-defined, keeping the focus on the fruit while adding a cedary oak overlay. Drink now through 2012.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The inky, purple-black color of the Cabernet yields rich, bright fruit on the nose and is layered with ripe blackberry, red plum, cream, tobacco and anise aromas followed by juicy, ripe raspberry and rich, dark fruit flavors. Sweet tannins are nicely integrated and the wine ends with excellent structure, length and balance.
