Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 93 Points (2014)
This wine is predominately Cabernet Sauvignon, with smaller amounts of other Bordeaux red varieties. Together, they offer bold, ripe red-currant and -berry flavors, with a rich entry and gravelly texture. Highly stylized, grippy tannins and a leather note provide additional strength.

James Suckling (JS) : 93 Points (2014)
Layered and subtle with currant, light chocolate, almond and cedar character. Medium body, polished tannins and a flavorful finish, yet this always reserved and polished. Enjoy. (5/2017)

Robert Parker (RP) : 92 Points (2014)
Phelps is now producing three cuvées of Cabernet Sauvignon-their Napa Valley, their flagship proprietary red Bordeaux blend called Insignia (which they debuted in 1974), and their Oakville steep hillside vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon called Backus. The basic Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa is 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. It saw 18 months in a combination of both French and American casks. This is their biggest cuvée (27,000 cases) and it is a beauty. The 2014 is supple, with silky tannins, dark plum, blackcurrant and licorice-infused fruit with a touch of spice, a lushness on the attack and mid-palate, and a silky finish. This wine was meant for early drinking, but there is no doubt it has the concentration and overall balance to age nicely for 15-20 years. (RP) (10/2016)

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 91 Points (2014)
Once again, Phelps has done a terrific job with their straight Cabernet Sauvignon. Surprisingly delicate and gracious on the palate, the 2014 is quite feminine in this vintage. Dark red cherry, plum, mocha, licorice and dark spices build as the wine gains depth and fleshiness with time in the glass. The Cabernet remains one of the very finest values in Napa Valley. (AG) (9/2016)

Decanter (DCT) : 92 Points (2013)
Stylish if very oaky, black fruit nose with a touch of menthol. There is a soft attack, but it has seductive fruit, a velvety texture and mid-palate spiciness. Attractive wine that can be broached early.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 89 Points (2013)
Very appealing, with a mix of lively dark berry, currant and black cherry flavors, showing touches of charry, toasty, cedary oak and ending with a woody presence and gripping tannins. Approachable now but should age well. Drink now through 2028. 23,000 cases made.
