Local Delivery: Just mention you would like free delivery or pick-up in "Special instruction box" before checkout
99pts-WA: Deep garnet-purple colored, the nose is a little reticent to begin, needing a fair bit of coaxing to reveal beautifully beguiling notions of wild blueberries, warm blackberries, black currant cordial, cloves and cedar chest with nuances of camphor, yeast extract, charcuterie and candied violets. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has fantastic elegance and depth, revealing loads of subtle floral, black fruit and earthy layers with a firm, very finely grained texture and seamless freshness, finishing with epic length. --The Wine Advocate, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, 10/2019
Winery Notes: The 2016 Insignia is fresh and focused on entry with expressive cocoa powder, graphite and earthy spices. Elegant and complex with a supple, creamy texture and bold tannins, this latest vintage offers luscious ripe plum and blackberry character with hints of roasted coffee and dark cherry throughout the palate to a long, velvety finish.--Opus One Winery
Compositon: Cabernet Sauvignon 84%, Petit Verdot 10%, Malbec 3% and Cabernet Franc 3%
