“One of Napa Valley’s finest values year in, year out, the ‘Baby Insignia’ returns in full form with the oh-so-lovable 2018 vintage. A silky smooth texture launches forth with notes of creamy vanilla and hints of rich milk chocolate! Bold dark fruits include black cherry, plum, cassis, sage, blackberry, baking cocoa, exotic sweet spices, graphite and pencil lead, enticing all senses at once. Ripe and rich, with solid balance, and a tangy finish. Tremendous bang for the buck.” - California Wine Advisors
