Joseph Phelps Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Fragrant ripe currants, dried herbs, and spice on the nose

Smooth and supple on the palate

Nice layers of mixed berries, cherry, anise, and cedar on the finish


Here's a soft, supple style of Napa Cab that's very approachable. The flavor and texture profile is open and relaxed. It's ready to enjoy now and should prove to be versatile with food. This was the case on Thanksgiving, as our magnum disappeared quickly. I paid $100 for the 1.5L format which always makes the table more festive. Raise a glass!
