Auction 12 | Lot No. 15
Joseph Phelps Vineyards
10 cases produced
This special lot is a blend from three blocks in our Backus Vineyard. One part is from the original planting in 1975 and the balance from vines planted in 1998 and 1999. The blend also includes a small amount of both Malbec and Petit Verdot. Expressive aromatics of dark fruits, graphite and cassis, combined with a focused palate lend to the concentrated mineral characteristics and the balanced tannin structure of this wine.
The Backus Vineyard is located in the eastern hills of Oakville. We are proud to offer this lot, which is a perfect expression of Oakville’s terroir.
