James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com:

"Amazing aromas of blueberry, blackberry, mineral and bark. Complex nose. Full body plus super integrated tannins with superb balance and depth. Coffee and chocolate too. Very long and mind-bending. A tribute to the vintage. Drink or hold. A long life ahead of it. A blend of 75% cabernet sauvignon, 10% merlot, 10% petit verdot, 3% malbec, and 2% cabernet franc."

Product Description:

-- Rated 96-100 points by Robert Parker, this is a classic in the making!
-- "This looks to be a killer effort, and is probably the greatest Insignia since the 2001 and 2002." -Robert Parker

The much anticipated release of the 2012 Joseph Phelps Insignia is finally up for sale! We've been fielding requests for almost a year now, and it's easy to see why! A possible 100 point effort from this historic winery, and a wine that Robert Parker called "...a killer effort, and is probably the greatest Insignia since the 2001 and 2002." Insignia fans will also recall that the 2002 Insignia was rated Wine Spectator's Wine of the Year back in 2005 as well. The 2002 also was re-rated by Robert Parker to a perfect score of 100 points back in 2002....a possible nod of things to come? We certainly think so!

This is can't miss effort for Napa Cabernet lovers!
