1991 Joseph Phelps Insignia 3L

1991 Joseph Phelps Insignia 3L

Wine Advocate 100pts!!! "An extraordinary dense plum/purple color is followed by a seductive as well as explosive bouquet of white chocolate, creme de cassis, spring flowers, licorice and a touch of graphite. This full-bodied, opulent 1991 reveals a flawless integration of acidity, tannin, wood and alcohol. Magnificent in the mouth with an opulent and voluptuous texture, and not a hard edge to be found, it reveals mindboggling purity and vigor. This sensational Insignia can be enjoyed over the next 10-15+ years. "


Vinous 98pts: "The 1991 Insignia is just as impressive as the Montelena. A rich, decadent, voluptuous wine, the 1991 is a phenomenal Insignia. Dark red and blue fruits, mocha and spices are some of the notes that flesh out in this modern-day classic from Phelps. This is such a great example of the more fruit-driven, ripe style in Napa Valley at its best. Even with all of the intensity, all the elements are in the right place."

Winemaker's Notes: "The 1991 growing season was one of the most intense, and exciting, in recent memory, with torrential rains in March breaking a 5-year drought, an unusually cool summer delaying the harvest a full month, and Indian summer conditions producing a near-perfect grape crop. They believe the wine that has been fashioned from these grapes comprises one of the great wines of the vintage, and possibly the decade, and below are some comments from wine writers who appear to agree."
