2003 Joseph Phelps, Cabernet Sauvignon, InnisfreeCalifornia, Napa Valley (1/26/2007)

Ruby red. No decant. Cherries, plums, cassis, and a small amount of oak on the nose. Cherries, plums, coffee, and chocolate on the palate. This would be a good food wine as there is a fair amount of acidity. The finish was smooth and moderate in length. Given the difficult 2003 NV vintage, this wine surpassed my expectations. At this price point you could do much worse. I believe the alcohol was 13.5%
