From the Critics:

  • "The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Insignia is a big, generous wine that covers the palate with waves of dark red fruit. Today it is beautifully expressive and opulent yet also well balanced. An explosive finish rounds things out in style. This looks to be a relatively approachable Insignia. Floral, spicy notes round out the finish. In 2009 the blend is 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Petit Verdot and 4% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029. I tasted a number of fabulous wines from Joseph Phelps this year. The 2009 and 2010 Backus and Insignia are still in barrel, but they are shaping up beautifully." - 93-96 Pts Antonio Galloni - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
  • "An early look at the 2009 Insignia (83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Petit Verdot and 4% Merlot) suggests they may have hit the trifecta at Joseph Phelps. Perhaps the most forward, precocious and sexy Insignia out of the gate, this wine shows wonderfully sweet tannins, already evolved complexity, an inky/purple color and sweet blackberry and cassis fruit intermixed with lavender, violets and spice box. The wood is already pushed to the background and the wine is stunningly textured as well as long. This was one of the finest 2009s I tasted. Joseph Phelps’ flagship wine, which they have been making for 36 years, is the Insignia, which boasts a remarkable track record. Phelps, always a visionary, was the first to recognize that a blend of grapes could be better than a single varietal cuvee. Phelps produces a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Backus Vineyard situated on the eastern slopes of the Oakville Corridor overlooking Screaming Eagle and Rudd Estate." - 94-96 Pts Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
