Wine Description

Deep purple in color with concentrated, jammy aromas of black cherry, herbs and mocha,and a long, balanced finish. Wine Spectator 92 points

Winemaker's Notes

This problematical growing season made it necessary to employ a rigorous selection process in the assembly of the final Insignia blend in order to maintain quality. As a result, production is approximately half of the '95 vintage and availability of this wine is extremely limited.At this stage in its development, the 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.
