K&L Notes

95 points Stephen Tanzer for Vinous: "Black fruits and violet on the nose, complemented by spicecake and nutty oak. Boasts outstanding purity and density of fruit but the wine's superb sweetness is nicely controlled by its sheer juicy concentration and spice character. Conveys great inner-mouth tension owing to its firm acidity and strong underlying minerality. A terrific early showing considering the recent bottling, with a high-pitched floral element that contributes to the wine's weightless impression. The tannins are beautifully integrated with the fruit but it's hard to imagine that this wine won't shut down at some point. The long, rising finish spreads out horizontally to saturate the palate."

    First produced in the 1974 vintage, Insignia is the first proprietary Bordeaux-style blend produced in California. Beginning with the 2004 vintage, the Insignia is sourced from entirely estate-grown fruit. The 2013 vintage is a classic Insignia. It is dense, powerful and shows lots of structure but all of that is hidden underneath layers of fresh, ripe fruit. Hints of bittersweet chocolate, plums, vanilla bean and spice linger on the finish. A great effort on their 40th anniversary!
