"Rich and yet conveying a sense of refinement right from the first with a deft bit of sweet oak in league with deep, lightly grassy fruit that stays center stage throughout its considerable length, that latest from Phelps is a carefully balanced, medium-full-bodied offering that hits all of the varietal marks without exaggeration of any. It is slightly fleshy and rounded in feel and finishes with fine firming acidity, and the layering at which it already hints is certain to become more manifest if afforded another few years in the cellar.
