Impeccable elegance characterizes this vintage of the producer’s marquee Bordeaux-style blend, an expert finessing of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petit Verdot, 4% Malbec, 2% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc. Juicy in exotic black fruit, it stands tall, with silky, towering shoulders of herb, cardamom and clove that will coalesce beautifully over time. *Cellar Selection* (VB) (5/2015)

This vintage of Joseph Phelps’ flagship accurately reflects the challenging but charming 2011 vintage. The cool, wet year brings fresh, herbal, rustic qualities – a charming departure from the concentration of more recent vintages – joining a palate of chicory, sawdust and bell peppers. It won’t have the lifespan of its more brawny siblings, but offers a different, more approachable, side of Insignia and California Cabernet. (ML) (6/2020)
