    Joseph Phelps Cabernet Sauvignon 1994
    Napa Valley
    Bottle (2)

    "The 1994 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa (a blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Merlot) appears to be one of the finest regular Cabernet Sauvignon cuvees Phelps has produced since the terrific 1975. It will be interesting to see if the 1994 outperforms Phelps' beautiful 1993 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa. For now, I give a one-point edge to the 1993, but perhaps that is only because the wine has had an additional year in bottle. The 1994 is a deep ruby/purple-colored wine with a sweet, ripe, black fruit, vanillin, and underbrush-scented nose, medium to full body, a layered texture, adequate acidity, and sweet tannin in the finish. The wine is mouthfilling, pure, and impressive." (89 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #108, Dec. 1996)
