Review
"Another great Insignia in the making is the 1999. An impressive black/purple color is followed by aromas and flavors of melted licorice and crème de cassis, immense body, a voluptuous texture, and an opulent, multilayered palate. This fabulously concentrated, low acid yet super-endowed wine should rival the compelling 1997 * …" [* NOTE: The 1997 Insignia received a score of 96 from both Robert Parker and the Wine Spectator, and was also rated No. 5 Wine of the Year in the 12/31/00-1/15/01 edition of the Wine Spectator.]

"At the conclusion of what is undoubtedly the most extraordinary decade California wine has ever experienced, it is no exaggeration to say that California wine has come of age and can now rival or surpass the world's finest."
