"Bottled in January 2019, the 2016 Insignia is a blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Malbec, aged for 24 months in 100% new French oak barrels. Deep garnet-purple colored, the nose is a little reticent to begin, needing a fair bit of coaxing to reveal beautifully beguiling notions of wild blueberries, warm blackberries, black currant cordial, cloves and cedar chest with nuances of camphor, yeast extract, charcuterie and candied violets. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has fantastic elegance and depth, revealing loads of subtle floral, black fruit and earthy layers with a firm, very finely grained texture and seamless freshness, finishing with epic length. 13,400 cases were made."

"Lovely density and intensity with dark berries, blueberries and inky undertones with hints of spice, chocolate and walnuts. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a flavorful finish. The texture and length are fantastic here. Complex. Hints of smoky wood at the end. This needs three to five years more in bottle age. Exciting wine. Try after 2022."

"This is a lengthy, powerful blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot and 3% each of Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Together they coalesce as one seamless, complex experience of black currant, brambly berry and black pepper, with accents of graphite, pencil and cedar. Robust in tannin and youthful energy, it will benefit from aging. Enjoy 2026–2031."

"Is the 2016 Insignia the next 1997? Coming mostly from the Stags Leap region, with the rest from the Home Ranch, this deep purple-colored beauty offers a magical bouquet of crème de cassis, fruitcake, forest floor, tobacco leaf, and toasted spices. It shows even more complexity with time in the glass and is a full-bodied, powerful, ageworthy example of this cuvée that’s going to benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age and keep for 25+ years or more."

"Elegant, silky, forward, fresh, clean and pure, the wine exudes class and an open character. Full-bodied, deep, but not overpowering, the texture is lush, soft and polished. Made from a blend of all 5 Bordeaux varietals, 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc and, 3% Malbec, even though the wine was aged in 100% new, French oak, most of the wood has already fully integrated into the wine." 

"This is laden with flavors of dark currant, blackberry and black cherry preserves, infused gently with alder, incense and black tea notes, all carried by a long swath of fine-grained tannins. Hints of warm stone and tobacco gild the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Best from 2021 through 2035. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 13,500 cases made."

"A very deep purple colour in the glass. Ripe but not overblown on the nose, all damson, blackberry and baked vanilla. The palate is powerful but balanced, bright acidity and grippy tannins tempering the glossy black fruit. Expansive, heady and rich, this is a blockbuster that warrants bottle age."

 In unmittelbarer Nachbarschaft zu Heitz in einem kleinen Seitental östlich des Napa Valley wurde im Jahr 1973 Phelps gegründet. Joseph Phelps, der Gründer gab dem Weingut seinen Namen. Zuvor verdiente sich Phelps seine Meriten im Baugewerbe. Und praktisch mit dem ersten Jahrgang sorgte Phelps für Furore. In der Folge erkannte er, wie zuvor bereits Ridge mit dem 1971er und Conn Creek mit dem 1974er, das unglaubliche Potential des Eisele Vineyard. Mit dem Jahrgang 1974 kam der erste release des Phelps Insignia auf den Markt, kurioserweise aber ohne Frucht vom Eisele Vineyard zu verwenden. 670 Kisten wurden produziert, 94% der Frucht (Cabernet Sauvignon) kamen vom Steltzer Vineyard in Stags Leap, 6% Merlot wurden vom Stanton Vineyard bezogen. Also keine eigene Frucht. Seitdem ist Insignia die Spitzencuvee des Hauses. Ein Wein, der sensationell altern kann, selbst der 74er zeigt sich noch taufrisch. Zudem sind die alten Jahrgänge nicht nur günstiger als die jungen Jahrgänge, sie sind „ready to drink“.
