A magnificent Insignia... fabulous notes of graphite, blackberries, blackcurrant liqueur, camphor, barbecue smoke & spice box. Rich, full-bodied & opulent with plenty of tannin & structure lurking beneath extravagant generosity of fruit...
Amazing aromas of blueberry, blackberry, mineral and bark. Complex nose. Full body plus super integrated tannins with superb balance and depth. Coffee and chocolate too. Very long and mind-bending. A tribute to the vintage.
...decidedly opulent, sexy wine that has loads of crème de cassis, roasted herbs, lead pencil, lavender, and exotic spice.
Rich, voluptuous & racy to the core. Raspberry jam, mocha, wild flowers, spices & espresso... sensual, enveloping Insignia, should drink well with minimal cellaring... a long drinking window of pure pleasure. Today, it is a total knock-out.
Packs a wallop, perhaps overly so, with extracted dark berry flavors and tannic muscle. The drying sensation on the finish distracts from the ripe blackberry, earth, cedar and gravel notes. Aromas of cassis, currant and blackberry
