An absolutely stunning lunch from @joe leatherwood today. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 5 reds and 1 dessert wine. All served blind. This was only one year off from the Blankiet of being the youngest wine on the table, but it seemed so much younger than that. Compared to the ‘97 Insignia on the table, similarities abounded. Baking spices, soft/bruised plum, blackberries, even some blue fruit peeking through. Oak was more noticeable and it was decidedly more tannic and dense from start to finish (even when it had been decanted for 8hrs). Very surprised (in a good way) that this is 18yr Old Napa Cab...no rush here. I called this mid-‘00s Napa Cab.

Sweet tobacco-infused and cherry-smoked bliss. Smoother than words allow. Peaking but should stay at apogee for decades.

Awesome 2001 Insignia given to me from a friend Matt! Thanks ! opened up immediately showing great black fruits and soft tannins that meld together perfectly. Had it with 8 people at Il Villagios Rest in Cherry Hill. I would say this wine is almost perfect! CB 99 Rating. WOW!

More lively than the last time I opened a bottle of this mistake purchase (Costco, 100 dollars in 2005.) But still, compared to the 2002 Leoville Barton, it really lacks depth. Lots of sweet fruit that finishes relatively short.
