Product Description

This wine is, simply put, incredible. Rated between 96 and 100 points, this dark red hued, full bodied cabernet sauvignon blend is wonderfully aromatic and has a complex palate consisting of flavors such as plum, spice, blackberry, blueberry, cherry, coffee, chocolate, and oak. This is one wine you will not want to miss out on, as it truly is a once in a lifetime experience. 

James Suckling: 97 Points

Robert Parker: 96 Points: "The flagship wine of the estate in reds is their Insignia, which has been one of the great Bordeaux blends made in California since the debut vintage in 1974. It usually has 30+ years aging potential, even in lighter vintages, of which the 2012, 2013 and 2014 are decidedly not. The 2012 Proprietary Red Insignia, a final blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot and the rest Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc all from estate vineyards, was aged 24 months in 100% new French oak... and it’s a fabulous, classic Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Inky purple to the rim, with notes of lead pencil shavings, incense, camphor, blackberry and creme de cassis, the wine is full-bodied, offering a multi-layered, textural, skyscraper-like mouthfeel, terrific purity, density and richness. All of this is achieved without a sense of heaviness or anything aggressive. This is a beauty to drink now and over the next 30 years."
