Joseph Phelps Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Backus Vineyard 2006
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.
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.
External Reviews for Joseph Phelps Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Backus Vineyard
Phelpsrsquo; basic Cabernet bottling is dry and elegant and classically balanced. It displays rich flavors of blackberries, black currants and cedar, with notes of violets and herbs. Fancy and impressive now, but not a longterm ager. Through 2012.
Generous black currant and blackberry flavors fill this juicy cabernet. Itrsquo;s lush and easy to enjoy on release, the gentle tannins ready to meld with rare prime rib.
The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa has gotten slightly better over the past year. It exhibits plenty of black currant fruit notes intertwined with hints of tobacco leaf, licorice, and forest floor as well as deep, medium to full-bodied flavors, ripe tannins, and a long finish. Enjoy it over the next 12ndash;15+ years.
A rich, deftly balanced style, loaded with complex earthy currant, black cherry, anise, coffee and mocha flavors that are sharply focused, long and concentrated on the finish, with a leathery streak working its way in. Best from 2003 through 2009.
Good bright ruby. roasted, smoky aromas of black currant and coffee. Sweeter and more layered than the '99 Merlot, with more nuanced black fruit and mineral flavors. Firm acids and tannins give this fairly dense wine a solid underlying backbone.
This tightly wound California Cab is definately one for your cellar. It's a touch earthy and leathery, but the core of currant, berry, cherry and spice flavors is rich and focused, finishing with a long, lively aftertaste. Will be best from 2001 through 2010.
The 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon is soft, round, and generous, with layers of jammy black fruits and spice. It is fat, fleshy, and full, with low acidity.
