Innisfree Cabernet Sauvignon

Innisfree Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Napa Valley, California, United StatesInnisfree is made from blocks of cabernet sauvignon that miss the cut for either the Phelps Insignia, or the Napa Valley labels. Often that happens in years when the crop is generous. It ticks all the boxes for a second label, with less oak, approachability, drinkability and most importantly, less money than the star bottles. The palate is Napa fragrant, offering up bright, intensebBing cherry, black raspberries and cocoa with well-rounded, balanced tannins. Ready to drink, but it will age for three to five years if asked.Tasted: 13 March 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 55.00 private stores AB 45.00 private wine shops MB 57.00 private wine shops ON 54.99 consignment: Lifford Wine and Spirits Producer: Joseph Phelps VineyardsDistributors: Trialto Wine Group
