1992 Insignia

Winemaker Notes Although the harvested grapes contained slightly higher tannins than the pervious vintage, the significantly lower acid levels provided superb balance and texture. The finished wine has deep, smoky aromas, lush blackcurrant fruit flavors, and a long, silky finish. We expect it to age gracefully for many years.

Reviews 95 - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
“The wine is extraordinary... a big, spicy, licorice, vanillin, smoky, cassis-scented nose, sweet, ripe, massive flavor concentration...” (1995)
