2008 Joseph Phelps "Eisrébe" Late Harvest (375ml)

SKU #1077693

92 points Wine Spectator: "Assertive, extremely sugary sweet flavors have an equally extreme juicy acidity to balance them out. Musky herb, orange blossom and rose water mingle with lemon drop and apple turnover flavors. Very intense and delicious. Scheurebe. Drink now through 2014. 1,200 cases made." (Web 2010) 90 points Stephen Tanzer: "Pale yellow-gold. Peach and apricot nectar and honey on the slightly high-toned nose. Dense, thick and sweet, but the fruit salad and honey flavors are kept fresh by ripe acids. Finishes bright, pure and long, with an enticing sugar/acid balance. Made from frozen scheurebe grapes, but vintages that bring botrytis to the fruit (2006 was the most recent one) are exceptions." (May/June 09)

Country:

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

Sub-Region:

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.

Specific Appellation:

Napa Valley

- America's most famous wine region, which encompasses a varied geographical territory running about 20 miles long from the San Francisco Bay northward to the foot of Mount St. Helena. Napa's great diversity, both in terms of climate and terroir, has led to the creation of a number of smaller AVAs like Stags Leap District, Rutherford, Howell Mountain, Oakville and Mount Veeder, among others. Cabernet and chardonnay still reign supreme, but just about everything under the sun is grown in Napa Valley, in quality levels ranging from $2 jug wine to $500 a bottle California cab.
