This is made from 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot and the rest Merlot and Malbec. Insignia is one of the First Growth wines of California. Its great just about every vintage and has been for decades. This one is no exception. Inky purple. The nose has cassis, graphite, blueberries, leather and cigar box. On the palate, this is still young. Medium tannins. Great balance. Lots of cassis and some blueberries with underlying damp forest floor. Long finish. Delicious. Will work great with heartier foods and certainly with meat dishes. The price on these is up to around $250
