    September 9, 2022 - Nose of leather with notes of dark fruit like plum. Flavors were dry with dark fruit, black cherry, black raspberry and plum. Finish was delightful with soft tannins and a beautiful lengthy flavor of dark fruit! A beautiful wine hitting its stride right now!!

    June 10, 2022 - Enjoying at 2010 Insignia and 2010 Groth Reserve with friends this evening. Opened both at 10am at the office to get them breathing LOL. After two hours, the nose on the Insignia is beautiful. The Groth is still a bit tight. My kind of aroma therapy. Won't be tasting until this evening. I'll report back tomorrow.

    June 9, 2022 - Deep dark red, gives way to notes of tobacco, cedar and crushed flowers. Structured and layered, notes of earthy dark fruit, fine grained oak, minerality, and graphite. Wood pencil shavings, but a richness that is very pleasant. Hard to resist it now with some air.
