1976 Insignia

Winemaker Notes The first of two drought years, harvest was early and yielded fruit low in acid and high in sugar. An average vintage, wines were high in extract and tannin, but without commensurate flavor and acid.

Reviews 93 - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
On the palate, this is the most concentrated, highly extracted red wine ever made at Phelps. (1988)
