"Bottled in January 2019, the 2016 Insignia is a blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Malbec, aged for 24 months in 100% new French oak barrels. Deep garnet-purple colored, the nose is a little reticent to begin, needing a fair bit of coaxing to reveal beautifully beguiling notions of wild blueberries, warm blackberries, black currant cordial, cloves and cedar chest with nuances of camphor, yeast extract, charcuterie and candied violets. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has fantastic elegance and depth, revealing loads of subtle floral, black fruit and earthy layers with a firm, very finely grained texture and seamless freshness, finishing with epic length. 13,400 cases were made.--99 Points", Lisa Perotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate


Over the past four decades, fewer wines have achieved more critical acclaim than Joseph Phelps iconic Insignia blend.  And after sampling it recently, I still think it remains one of America's most impressive red wines. This Cabernet-Sauvignon dominant blend offers a big mouthful of fruit, followed by bold tannins in the finish.  It is definitely a wine that makes one pay attention.
