Another outstanding red from Phelps, this one serving up lots of juicy ripe fruit, with layers of cherry, currant, blackberry and anise, turning supple and concentrated, with a rich aftertaste that keeps pumping out the flavors. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
More structured, tannic, and dense than the 1995, the 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon requires patience...The 1996 reveals a saturated ruby/purple color, low acidity, and plenty of tannin and muscle in the brawny finish. .. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2015.
Good deep ruby-red. Enticing aromas of cassis, licorice, mocha, mint and oak spice. Juicy and nicely delineated, with lovely sweetness; dark berry flavors complicated by leather and mint. Finishes with substantial, ripe tannins. A very good basic cabernet release.
