Blend and Grape Sources 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Merlot from 67% estate & 33% grower vineyards: 46% Las Rocas Vineyard (Stags Leap), 21% Banca Dorada Vineyard (Rutherford) and 33% Oakville, Coombsville, Carneros and Napa Valley growers.
Appellation Napa Valley
Harvest Dates September 9 - October 19, 1993
Aging/Cooperage 26 months in new French oak barrels
Winemaker Notes Because of the small crop, the 1993 Insignia holds much promise, showing great color, concentration and loads of flavor; black cherry, blackcurrants, spice and a touch of oak.
96 Points - Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
The wine continues to exhibit spectacular richness, and is even stronger from bottle than it was from cask. (1995)
