The flagship wine, the 2001 Insignia Proprietary Wine, an 18,000-case blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, and 3% Malbec, continues to live up to my high praise from last year. Rich, elegant, and nuanced, this dense ruby/purple wine offers a nose of creme de cassis, incense, licorice, chocolate, and spice box. It is full-bodied, opulently styled with plenty of tannin, but the structural aspects of the wine are well-concealed by its intensity and overall richness. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2020.
