Member Exclusive: 2007 Insignia Perfection
2007 Joseph Phelps Insignia, Napa Valley
Blend: 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot from 100% estate-grown Napa Valley vineyards.
Winemaker Notes: The darkly pigmented 2007 Insignia is a perfect example of the amazing color this vintage produced. Rich aromatics of mineral, baking spices, dark chocolate, graphite, and opulent plum and blackberry lead to the concentrated and balanced mouthfeel. Silky, well structured tannins, core black fruit and sweet oak notes from our estate vineyards create length and weight that will allow this beautiful wine to age, as well as remain approachable in its youth.
100 Points - Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
The 2007 Insignia reveals the most seductive crème de cassis, Black Forest cake and licorice notions with touches of violets, eucalyptus, chocolate box and unsmoked cigars plus a waft of cedar chest. Full-bodied with tantalizing opulence yet compelling restraint, the palate beautifully juxtaposes the rich, ripe fruit with wonderful freshness and a firm yet plush backbone, finishing beautifully perfumed. -LPB, Aug. 2018
