1993 Insignia

Winemaker Notes Because of the small crop, the 1993 Insignia holds much promise, showing great color, concentration and loads of flavor; black cherry, blackcurrants, spice and a touch of oak.

Reviews 96 Points - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
The wine continues to exhibit spectacular richness, and is even stronger from bottle than it was from cask. (1995)
