The 2015 Insignia Proprietary Red Wine is blended of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Malbec aged for 24 months in 100% new French oak. Deep garnet-purple colored, it opens with stunning black and red plums, cassis and mulberries scents with loads of redcurrant sparks and compelling wafts of lilacs, pencil shavings, black olives and tilled soil plus a hint of bay leaves. Medium to full-bodied, the palate explodes with red and black currant fireworks plus some exciting mineral nuances coming through, framed by firm, grainy tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing very long and beautifully layered. 12,400 cases produced. LPB – The Wine Advocate

The 2015 Insignia is a fleshy, flamboyant vintage for this wine and reminds me of the 1997. Tons of dark fruits, tobacco, cedar, and dried flower notes all give way to a full-bodied, seamless 2015 that has remarkable purity and elegance, yet still shows the vintage’s sexy style. Drink it any time over the coming two to three decades. - Jeb Dunnuck

The subtlety and brightness to this one. Blackcurrants, fresh mint and sage undertones. Full-bodied, yet so tight and reserved. Linear and very racy with fantastic blackberries, crush stones and lead pencil. Love the finish. This is a wine that needs three to four years of bottle age. Try in 2022. James Suckling

The 2015 Insignia is a blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, and the rest Malbec and Cabernet Franc. This wine looks to be another killer effort, with 13,000 cases produced. Dense purple in color, with notes of white flowers, blueberries, blackberries, coffee, white chocolate and new oak, the wine is dense, thick, viscous, chewy and succulent. It should drink beautifully young but age effortlessly for 35 or more years. Robert Parker – The Wine Advocate
