"The light, pedestrian 2003 Insignia (84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, and the rest equal parts Malbec and Merlot), while outstanding, is not one of the most inspirational examples of this proprietary blend. Medium-bodied with an evolved, sweet nose of chocolate, black currants, plums, and toasty new oak, this rich, ripe, well-balanced 2003 does not possess the persistence or depth of the 2002 or 2001. Drink the 2003 over the next 10-15 years." - 91 Points - Robert Parker
"Full ruby-red. Slightly jammy aromas of blackberry, mocha and dark chocolate. Not especially dense or fleshy but has an attractive juicy quality and good life. Dominated by a flavor of black raspberry. Finishes with big, firm, rather fine tannins." 92 Points - Stephen Tanzer -
