The Wine Advocate
"The 2000 Insignia reveals a smoky, rich cassis characteristic, medium to full body, and an open-knit, lush, generous style without the austere backwardness of the 1999. Expansive, fleshy and seductive, it should drink well for 15-16 years."
The Wine Spectator
"Joseph Phelps 2000 Insignia Napa Valley. Serves up lots of ripe, rich, spicy cherry, currant, plum and blackberry fruit. Tightly focused, with fine balance. Finishes with spicy, cedary oak and good length."
