Perfectly Cellared 98-Point 1994 Phelps Insignia. One Bottle Only!
It’s no stretch to call Insignia a first growth of Napa Valley wine. Its track record of huge scores and incredible longevity speak for themselves. You don’t believe me? Just try this perfectly aged and cellared 1994 that blew away Robert Parker, Jr. 20 some years ago when he reviewed this wine. The 1994 Phelps Insignia presents an incredibly rare opportunity to pick up one of the American first growths with some great age to it. Parker called it an “extraordinary, full-bodied Bordeaux style blend.” Only one bottle is available for a lucky someone.

98 Points – Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 1994 boasts an inky/purple color along with a glorious nose of black raspberries, blackberries and black currants that is still somewhat primary despite nearly 18 years in bottle. The Phelps team kept this cuvee in 100% new French oak for 28 months. Its magnificent structure, intensity and purity of fruit, ripeness, balance combined with authoritative power and the magnetic appeal of this full-bodied, Bordeaux-styled wine are extraordinary. This amazing effort is just coming into its best years, and should drink well for at least another 15-20 years.
