Quick Overview

Insignia has an incredibly inky hue with layers of perfumed plum, dark berries, bergamot, mocha and graphite aromas followed by hints of spice box. The texture on the palate is ultra-concentrated and silky with blackberry flavors and a touch of black pepper, cocoa and curry spices leading to the lush, lingering and focused finish.
INSIGNIA

Details

First produced from the 1974 vintage, 2016 Insignia marks the 40th vintage of our flagship Napa Valley wine. Deeply pigmented, the 2016 Insignia opens with heady blackberry and plum aromatics laced with baking spices, cardamom and espresso. Focused and fresh, this exceptionally concentrated wine showcases elegant tannin structure and a silky mouthfeel layered with dark fruit, sweet vanilla bean, cracked black pepper and bittersweet chocolate. Blend: 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, 3% Merlot, 3% Malbec and 1% Cabernet Franc 24 months in 100% new French oak from coopers Taransaud, Dargaud Jaegle, Nadalie, Demptos, Marcel Cadet and Sylvain before bottling in January 2014. The grapes were hand-picked and sorted to stainless steel tanks for cold soaking, followed by fermentation. Macerations were extended for up to forty days, adding to the wine’s velvety texture and concentrated, intense flavors prior to barrel aging.
