Reviews of the Covenant Napa Valley Solomon Lot 70 Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 and Russell’s Reserve Small Batch 10-Year-Old Bourbon.
The domestic wine world lost one of its leading lights last month when celebrated California winemaker Joseph Phelps passed away at age 87. For over 40 years Phelps remained at the forefront of Napa winemaking with his Bordeaux and Rhone styled blends, and his single varietal bottlings. Along with other legends, including Robert Mondavi and Chuck Wagner, Phelps helped established Napa as a world renowned wine producing region.
