2006 Joseph Phelps Insignia

Community Tasting Note

90 Points

Tuesday, January 1, 2013 - 14.5% ABV. Opened this NYE and tasted over the course of a couple days hoping for some improvement. Somewhat translucent dark garnet in the glass. Somewhat woody on the nose with nuances of cocoa and currant. Medium full bodied with some tannin still hanging around. Seems styled more in the vein of Bordeaux (e.g., old world) than I typically expect with Insignia. Not bad, but a bit disappointing based on hopes/expectations. Little changed day two, but perhaps a bit more accessible.
