1976 Souverain Cabernet 1976 Joseph Phelps Cabernet
5/16/07-The Wednesday wine group tasted the 76 Souverain and 76 Joseph Phelps cabernets. An interesting contrast. The Souverain was unbelievable good, quite fruity with red currant flavors and very little tannin, little browning and enjoyed by all. The Phelps was a much bigger wine, very dark with flavors that leaned toward coffee, tobacco and cedar, not enjoyed by some and some went back for seconds (and even thirds).
