Joseph Phelps Insignia – A Magnificent Wine


Joseph Phelps’s Insignia was Wine Spectator’s 2005 Wine of the Year. Last year 12,400 wines were blinded tasted by Wine Spectator tasters. From those Insignia was chosen.
In contrast to most other Californian wines, from the very first Insignia in 1974, the varietal name was left off the bottle. The wine drinker was left to guess what grapes were used to make the wine. Prior to founding a vineyard, Joseph Phelps ran a construction company in Colorado. The wines are available in India through Brindco.
