1996 Insignia

Winemaker Notes The 1996 insignia wine displays aromas of ripe black fruit, spice and hints of new oak, along with intense fruit flavors, sweet tannins and a long, textured finish.

Reviews 96 Points - Wine Spectator
Ripe and polished, with deep, complex currant, herb, blackberry, cherry, sage, tea and spice flavors, all sharply focused and built on a frame of supple tannins. (1999)
