Was even better than the high expectations that this wine had. I enjoyed it more than any Cardinale, Opus One, Cos D'Estournel, Leoville Barton that I have all recently had. I decanted it and poured it right into my new "Eisch" glasses and it was perfect within minutes
Enjoyed at Hondo's in Richmond, VA. Didn't get to finish the bottle as business partner choked on piece of Cowboy cut ribeye - never forget that dinner Steve. Oh - set the bar high for my still developing wine tastebuds.
This is a full throttle, intense wine with a lot of complexity. It is a bit edgy, seems like something that will age well, very different from other vintages. After several hours of decanting it was not tamed. The bouquet is amazing. I much prefer the 2001 Insignia now, but I can imagine this one passing it in time. Today's rating I would give 94 points.
I haven't had the Insignia, but I've heard it's nice. BUT IS IT TRUE THAT TRIBUTE TO OUR SOLDIERS WAS BLOCKED??? PLEASE SOMEONE CONFIRM OR DENY AS I SHANT BE DOING BUSINESS WITH SOMEONE WHO DOESN'T SUPPORT OUR TROOPS!!!
The Insignia is one of the best wines Ive ever had, lots of fruit up front with layers and layers of flavors and a long finish. Unfortunately, Im afraid to say anything bad about any wine, because Jim Weinrott shut down the wineaccess bulletin board when he didnt like a tribute that listed US soldiers who perished in Iraq. By doing that he extinguished a vibrant nationwide community of wine lovers.
