"Be the first on your block" to pick up the new 2006 Joseph Phelps Vineyards "Innisfree" Cabernet Sauvignon
I just returned from a trip to Napa, where I spent a lot of time tasting the '05 and '06 vintage Cabernets side-by-side. '06 is, in many respects, shaping up to be even better than the bold and ripe '05 vintage because it has better structure, more integrated tannins, and another great layer of complexity. Unfortunately there were smaller yields overall in 2006, so there will be less wine available. So that just means we'll have to grab what we can while we can!

One 2006 Cabernet release that has me really jazzed is Joseph Phelps Innisfree Cabernet. Over the past three decades, Joseph Phelps Vineyards have made a name for themselves producing stellar vintages of their high-scoring and high-priced proprietary blend, Insignia. Crafting such a high-quality wine means growing more than enough high-quality fruit, and extra barrels of quality fruit means the ability to bring you these bottles grown, tended, and crafted by the Phelps team at about 1/6 of Insignia's price! That's exactly what they've done with the Innisfree Cabernet Sauvignon 2006.
The grapes for the Innisfree Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 are almost entirely Phelps Estate grown in the Napa Valley appellation, and carry flavors of black currant and mocha. An incredible value from such a notable estate.
We've had lots of inquiries about Innisfree since we ran out of the 2005 bottling, so it's with pleasure that I offer you "first dibs" on the 2006 Joseph Phelps Innisfree Cabernet Sauvignon...ENJOY! -Gary
