Wine Advocate

The 2003 Insignia (15,000 cases) performed much better this year than last, when I tasted it right after bottling. A blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot and the rest Malbec and Merlot, it offers up attractive aromas of licorice, black currants, espresso roast, and background toasty oak. Full-bodied, opulent, and rich with outstanding depth, purity, and harmony, sweet tannin, and a long finish, it is approachable now, but will easily last for 20 years.

Score: 94. —Robert Parker, December 2006.

International Wine Cellar

(a blend of 84% cabernet sauvignon, 10% petit verdot, 3% merlot and 3% malbec) Full ruby-red. Slightly jammy aromas of blackberry, mocha and dark chocolate. Not especially dense or fleshy but has an attractive juicy quality and good life. Dominated by a flavor of black raspberry. Finishes with big, firm, rather fine tannins.

Score: 92. —Stephen Tanzer, May 2006.

Wine Spectator

Supple, polished and harmonious, it delivers a complex range of rich currant, berry and cherry fruit, cedary oak, hints of anise and sage and a persistent, lingering finish. Mildly tannic. Drink now through 2011.

Score: 90. —James Laube, September 06, 2006.
