James Suckling Top 100 Wines of 2021

We are thrilled to share the news that our 2018 Insignia has been named to the James Suckling Top 100 Wines of 2021 list!

99 points & #42 Top 100 Wines of 2021
2018 Joseph Phelps Insignia

Blackberry and black chocolate with mint, conifer and clove. Sweet tobacco, violets and flowers, too. Some graphite. Cool and complex. Full-bodied with ultra-fine, dusty tannins and a wonderful, extremely long finish. Savory and refined. A classic-styled 2018. This needs time, but is so approachable and gorgeous. One of the best Insignias ever. Alive and changing all the time. Leave this for five or six years, but so wonderful now. (March, 2021)
