A beautiful deep garnet hue with incredible depth and concentration. Aromas of freshly crushed blueberries and blackberries intertwined with baking spices, cigar box and attractive floral notes are followed by seamless tannins, texture and finish. This wine is focused and fresh, with a youthful showiness.

96 points, Wine Enthusiast (Dec. 31, 2012): "...soft, smoothly tannic wine that's rich in blackberry jam, black currant, blueberry, raspberry, dark chocolate and spice flavors..."

96 points, Connoisseurs' Guide (Dec. 12): "...a wine of exceptional crafting and polish, and yet in this outing, it seems to have an extra measure of richness and fruity strength, not to mention plenty of grippy structural tannins..."

95 points, The Wine Advocate (Issue #204, Dec. 12): "A gorgeous, totally voluptuous wine, the 2009 Insignia bursts from the glass with exuberant blue and black fruit, grilled herbs, cloves and cassis..."

94 points, Stephen Tanzer's International Cellar (May/June 2012): "...plush, fine-grained and sweet on the palate, with excellent fat and a loamy complexity to the flavors of blackcurrant, dark chocolate and graphite..."

92 points, Wine Review Online (Dec. 18, 2012): "...This vintage of Insignia will no doubt be a crowd-pleaser, however, because it's simply delicious to drink now..."
