Wine Review: This wine has a big inviting black currant bouquet. On the palate, the wine is rich, full bodied, and packed with flavor. The flavor profile is a mix of blackberry and current, with a hint of oak. The finish is dry and very prolonged. Insignia fans will be pleased. I was. Enjoy- Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2003 Insignia is layered with aromas of blackberries, black cherries, anise, dark chocolate and coffee. The aromas and flavors are framed by mouth-coating tannins and followed by an extremely long finish.
