The 2018 Insignia Checks In As 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, 3% Malbec And The Rest Cabernet Franc, From A Mix Of Vineyards (Mostly In The Southern Part Of The Valley) Aged Two Years In New French Oak. It Has An Incredible Bouquet Of Cassis, Currants, Dark Chocolate, Lead Pencil, And Tobacco, And While It’s Unquestionably Napa, It Has A Regal, Structured, Almost Bordeaux-Like Vibe As Well. Full-Bodied, Perfectly Balanced, And Layered On The Palate, With Silky Tannins, This Quintessential Insignia Is Up With The Finest Vintages Of This Cuvée.
