This is a great cabernet, but was probably much better two years ago. I am eager to try a more recent vintage

This outstanding wine was given to a dear friend for her birthday and i had the great pleasure of sharing this remarkable cab over dinner. The subtle flavors of deep cherry, currant and a hint of chocolate took both of us by surprise. We agreed this Insignia 01 is our new favorite wine! BR BRCheers!

this is an under rated wine, it is very sweet initially with hints of spices. It is supported by its tannic backbone and promises to develope into quite a good wine with some cellaring.
