Vintages Wine Panel: Here’s a gem from a producer with a first-rate reputation for Cabernet. Grapes for this wine come from the very same vineyards as Phelps’ more famous cult wine, Insignia, but from younger vines. The Innisfree Cab is a forward and approachable wine with aromas and flavours of mulled spices, red fruit, coffee and cedar, with a long, concentrated finish. The ten months in a mix of French and American oak imbue it with a slight smokiness. My note: A regal Napa Valley cab for half the usual price. It’s got it all: balance, length, depth and gorgeous aromas of cassis, blackberries and smoke. Worth trying and worth the splurge. Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: grilled red meats.
