K&L Notes

93 points Antonio Galloni in Vinous: "The 2011 Insignia is impressive, no doubt about it. In this vintage, it is the wine's length and persistence that stand out most. This is a decidedly Old World style of Insignia with less raciness than is customary. Grilled herbs, smoke, dried rose petal, tobacco and cedar are some of the notes that add complexity. Readers should give the 2011 another few years in bottle for the tannins to soften. This is the first vintage of Insignia that incorporates both Cabernet Franc and Malbec. This is a very strong set of new and upcoming releases from Joseph Phelps and winemaker Ashley Hepworth. The 2011s are strong, the 2012s capture the personality of the year, while the 2013s are shaping up to be superb." (9/2014)

    In warm vintages such as 2007, I feel Insignia is too much for me. The cooler 2011 vintage really allows this wine to still have that typical Phelps fruit but with much more restraint and a bit more elegance and finesse. This is a solid effort for the vintage!
