Absolutely stunning. A plethora of aromas hit you from the glass. Dark, crimson color in the glass. Velvety texture that encompasses your entire mouth. Dark fruit in the palate. Continues to evolve over the next hour. Has come together perfectly. Tannins are resolved. Hard to describe how good this wine is right now.
If this cab is great, I can only imagine how awesome the 2007 Insignias are.
Quite a spectacular wine with a nose that doesn't let you go. Used in monthly wine tasting series and it took 1st among 4 Napa Cabs from 2007 and a mix of Northern CA Cabs from 2007-2009. The nose was full of vanilla, dusty earth, cherries, blackberries, plums, and hints of oak. Each swirl of the glass would take you down a different path, but always ended in a rewardingly pleasant place. The finish was long and wonderfully integrated.
PnP w/1.5 hr decant. Clear, very few fine bottom sediments. Deep dark purple color, long legs. Intense, mature Napa nose. Med body/texture, med/big weight/depth/complexity. Coffee, mineral, tar, tobacco, wet stone, blue fruit, med tannins mostly resolved. Good balance/integration. Good for years yet. Nothing off. Great value, $42
