The 2018 Insignia has “tons of potential”, according to Antonio Galloni. Awarding a score band of 93-96 points, Galloni highlights how the 2018 vintage appears more delicate and “less bombastic” than recent vintages. Lisa- Perrotti-Brown (Wine Advocate) noted “powerful notes of blackcurrant cordial, stewed black plums and boysenberries” on a medium to full-bodied palate that showed “remarkable balance” despite its youth, giving a higher 97+ points. The most impressed of the lot, James Suckling awards a near-perfect 99 points to the 2018 Insignia that appears to be “alive and changing all the time” in the glass".

Producer

Joseph Phelps is one of Napa Valley’s most prominent and best known producers. Establishing his winery ed in 1973, Phelps conceived an idea to create a separate cuvée each year, one that would represent the finest wine he could make without any limitation on grape varietals or site selection. So without realising its significance, in 1974 he created and launched the first Napa ‘proprietary red’ - called Joseph Phelps ‘Insignia’. This moment of inspiration has spawned countless emulations – and today ‘proprietary reds’ are the stable expression of most of the top Napa estates.

Joseph Phelps remains one of the few family-run wineries in Napa, encompassing nine estate vineyards. ‘Insignia’ remains the estate’s flagship and the ultimate expression of what these vineyards can produce
