Joseph Phelps Innisfree Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
Affordable Phelps Cabernet from Napa fruit, the Innisfree is made only in excellent vintages such as 2002. Fruit-forward with concentrated ripe blackberry, cassis and vanilla. Elegant and correct as you would expect from one of the worldrsquo;s premium Cabernet producers.Add winemaker's notes
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
Full bodied cabernet with deep cherry or almost purple color. Delighful smooth wine with blackberry aroma. A $20+ wine that tastes like a $50+.
When Joseph Phelps releases this wine (only on superior surplus years) I make sure I buy plenty of it. You can find it out there for around $20 a bottle and I think it is one of the best $20 cabs money can buy. Phelps obviously has a marvelous pedigree from their Insignia blend. This cab is awesome.

Phelps, famous for its pricey cult classic, Insignia, has demonstrated the same deft touch at winemaking for those of us on a budget. Enter Innisfree. Itrsquo;s as smooth and caressing as the Yeats poem of the same name and similarly shows why we should all slow down just a bit. Let this one open up. Patience is rewarded with beautiful notes of sweet tobacco, subtle mint and black currant complexities on the nose. The oak is present, but in check, allowing seductive chocolaty elements to emerge. The winersquo;s great persistence of black cherries and cassis lends itself to a thoroughly satisfying wine experiencehellip; one yoursquo;ll ldquo;hear in the deep heartrsquo;s core.rdquo;
