The 1992 Insignia the flagship proprietary wine of the Joseph Phelps portfolio is a 67% Cabernet Sauvignon / 33% Merlot blend. The wine is extraordinary with an opaque purple color a big spicy licorice vanillin smoky cassis-scented nose sweet ripe massive flavor concentration and well-integrated acidity and tannin which make for an unctuous texture and a juicy mouthful of wine. It should drink well for 20+ years. It may be the most opulent and hedonistic Insignia since the debut release in 1974.

Starts with a slight earthiness but then quickly shows a ripe plush generous core of complex currant black cherry anise sage and blackberry that's youthful vibrant and remarkably complex. Aging very gracefully.--'92...
