    August 13, 2016 - Best wine on trip saved till last meal. Dark purple color, dark fruit nose with sweet spice and leather notes. Silky tannins on palate. Dark berries and chocolate. Did not disappoint, could have used more decant time as evolved pleasantly during meal.

    July 9, 2016 - Opened a bottle of the 06 and 09. The 06 was definitely the better of the two. My score for the 09 might be too harsh because of the comparison.

    July 3, 2016 - Two hour decant. Drinking well now, but plenty of life left on this bad boy. Dark fruits, cedar, graphite. Plums. Great mouthfeel and nice long finish.

    May 21, 2016 - Had at Per Se. Decanted 1 hour.
    Dark in color with wet leather and vanilla on the nose, so oak is still present.
    Dark berries especially blueberry on palate but this wine is still very tannic.
    Amazing how much JP Insignia can very from vintage to vintage.
