(2003 Vintage) With the release of the 1974 Insignia, Joseph Phelps Vineyards became the first California winery to produce a blend of traditional Bordeaux varietals under a proprietary name. Thirty vintages later, Insignia has remained one of Napa Valley's most highly acclaimed and sought-after wines. Originally sourced from the best available grower fruit, since the 1990 vintage Insignia has been produced primarily from estate-owned vineyards in the Stag's Leap District and Rutherford Bench – two of the most desirable sources for Cabernet Sauvignon in the world.
84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petite Verdot, 3% Merlot and 3% Malbec, primarily from estate-owned vineyards in Stag's Leap, Rutherford and St. Helena (87%), with additional fruit coming from independent growers (13%).
