Joseph Phelps Vineyards Insignia Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1986

$199

This surprisingly rich, dark garnet-colored Insignia displays notes of cedarwood, tobacco leaf, black currants, graphite and damp earth. Medium to full-bodied with remarkable density, richness and vigor for its age... Another strong performance by an Insignia from the mid-eighties... Robert Parker

Dry light fruit perfume nose with herbs. Fruits have turned to rustic figs, prunes and dates, dry cranberries/rhubarb/pomegranate, dark cherries that have taken on a slight liqueur quality, ripe strawberries, spiced plum cedar, soft used leather, tobacco leaf, powdery crushed rocks, anise and a lean dry, high acid fig, date, prune and cooked light to mid red cooked fruit finish. Out of magnum.

Magnum. Sadly, a bit corked. Tasted blind with tasting group. Mineral, cinnamon, mint in the aromas. In a very pretty spot.
