1987 Insignia

Winemaker Notes Low crop yields and intense berry flavors characterized the 1987 vintage. This year’s blend offers rich, black currant flavors, exotic tobacco leaf aromas and a spicy cherry-like component. The result is a striking wine that at this point is still quite young and will improve for many years.

Reviews 96 Points - Wine Spectator
Magnificent. Dark, ripe, dense, chewy and enormously concentrated, it's clearly one of the stars of the vintage. (1997)
