Floral with flavors of blueberry, cassis and spice. Great acidity. Firm tannins. The Ferrari of wine.
A glamorous wine, rich and complex, with lots going on. With rich blackberry and cassis flavors wrapped into thick tannins and fine new oak sweetness... Give it a rest until 2015. Cellar Selection.
Once again, Insignia takes its accustomed place near the very head of the class, and, as usual, it is one of the most polished and well-balanced Cabernets to be had. That is not to say that it in any way lacks for authority, richness or size, for it is an intense and impressively filled wine, and it vies for top honors in a vintage that has provided more than a few noteworthy wines. It drives home the point that big wines can be wonderfully balanced, and, while delicious even now, it will not reach its peak for a good many years to come.
