    January 13, 2017 - Young, but enjoyable now. Had at a restaurant....no decant, but open about 45 minutes. A long decant might have helped, but it did not improve with time through dinner. It was a surprisingly level experience through the evening. A very deep/dark wine. I expect it to gain complexity with time.

    December 7, 2016 - Extremely young still. Has a long way to go. Had that initial signature Insignia nose when first opened, but then it quickly closed up and shut down hard. Hold. Will be fantastic in a few years.

    November 19, 2016 - Relatively speaking this was just ok. Expected more from JP Insignia. Since the 2007 vintage, which now is just ok, theses have underperformed in my opinion.

    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.
