The debut of Napa native winemaker and entrepreneur Josh Phelps’ own label, this is a blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec, 7% Cabernet Franc, 6% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot. It delivers tremendous value for the quality, a mix of chocolate-covered cherry, blueberry and vanilla cola wrapped in smooth, seductive layers of robust elegance. Tobacco, pencil shavings and cigar box add alluring seasoning.
The debut vintage of Steady State is a blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec, 7% Petit Verdot, 6% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc coming from vineyards in Rutherford, Oakville, Saint Helena, and Yountville. Juicy, rich, and balanced, this wine is layered with complexity yet oh so drinkable and friendly. Seductive aromas of toasted vanilla, forest floor, and Christmas spice are lightly laid on a palate of juicy, ripe black cherry, blackberry, and rich mocha. The tannins are round and seamlessly integrated along with perfectly balanced fresh acidity and body. A truly impeccable wine
