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
Whenever a customer comes in looking for a phenomenal bottle of Cab, the Innisfree is always my first instinct. Robust, richly textured, and with a depth of flavor you would normally find in bottles twice the price, this is truly one of the best values in our store! Beautiful black cherry hue, with a stunningly complex nose. On the palate, ripe black currant and blackberry share the stage with spicebox, anise, toasty oak and a slight herbaceousnes. The perfect go-to bottle when you want something good!
Previous vintages of this wine have never failed to excite, and the 2006 is no exception! Forward, warm scents of crushed berries fill the glass while full-bodied flavors of black currant, dusty raspberry, vanilla and allspice coat the palate.
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.
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.
A dense, juicy Cabernet, the Phelps Innisfree is firm with good acidity and backbone. It begins with dark blackberries and cassis, and opens up in your mouth to reveal bright raspberries and chocolate. The perfect wine for a steak or a roast; absolutely delicious.
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.
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.
