1975 Insignia

Winemaker Notes The softness & characteristically floral aroma of Merlot is complemented nicely by the addition of some Cabernet Sauvignon; a practice widely employed throughout Bordeaux. In this instance the blend of the two proved to be of such great interest that it was selected for bottling under our Insignia label, a designation reserved from the finest wine of the vintage.
