Joseph Phelps 2001 Backus Cabernet Sauvignon (Oakville)

Cellar Selection

Tasted alongside a bevy of Oakville Cabs, this beauty was the star of the show. It's a huge, masculine wine, authoritative and ageable. Pours dark and drinks tannic and oaky, with a massive core of cassis, cherry and chocolate fruit encased in perfect tannins. What grace and power, what balance. Drink now through 2016, at least.
