Re: TN: 1991 Joseph Phelps Cabernet Sauvignon Backus Vineyard

1991 Von Strasser out of a magnum was amazing a few weeks back...Also, just my 2 cents but the resurgence at Phelps started in 1994 after some tough vintages.

An offline is a great idea and though I live in Napa, I would be happy to travel to a more central location in the Bay Area. I promise to go deep into the cellar, though Marty has an amazing Library, so it could be special if he could attend.
