1982 Insignia

Winemaker Notes The long, cool growing season of 1982 was responsible for red wines of style and grace. This year's blend has a rich, almost cherry flavor, with added touches of mint, spice and an exotic, cedar-like aroma. The result is a remarkable wine - lean, tightly knit and sure to improve for many years.
