With complex aromas of black cherry, plum, chocolate, currant and toasty oak, the wine displays layers of flavor and richness that disguise its power and longevity. Beautifully crafted and balanced, the 1997 Insignia reflects a new level of quality from both the vineyards and the growing regions.
"Saturated ruby-purple color. Pungent aromas of blackberry, black raspberry, blueberry, mint and spicy oak, along with floral and grapey aspects. Wonderful depth of dark berry flavor; more opulent and mouthfilling than the '96. Great expanding aftertaste. Extremely unevolved today, but offers great potential.
Range: 92-95 "
