“One of Napa Valley’s finest values year in, year out, the “Baby Insignia” returns in full form with the oh so lovable 2016 vintage. A classy nose and the silky palate are rich in dark fruits and sexy new oak, black cherry, plum, cassis, sage, blackberry, baking cocoa, exotic sweet spices, graphite and pencil lead, enticing all senses at once. Ripe and rich, with dusty tannins lingering on the superbly balanced, graceful finish. Tremendous bang for the buck.” - California Wine Advisors

Napa insiders often refer to Joseph Phelps Cabernet as “Insignia Jr.” since it is composed from the same world-famous Joseph Phelps Estate vineyard that serves as the source for the iconic Insignia. Robert Parker has extolled: “No doubt, the fruit coming from 100% estate vineyards has certainly added quality to this offering.”
