"A gorgeous, totally voluptuous wine, the 2009 Insignia bursts from the glass with exuberant blue and black fruit, grilled herbs, cloves and cassis. In 2009, the Insignia is silky and polished, yet there is considerable underlying tannin that needs time to soften. Layers of fruit flow effortlessly to the huge, structured finish. I imagine the 2009 Insignia will enjoy a broad drinking window. It is striking today, but also clearly has the stuffing to age for many, many years."

2010 Quintessa

"(92% cabernet sauvignon with 3% merlot, 2% each cabernet franc and petit verdot, and 1% carmenere): Good bright, deep red. Perfumed aromas of raspberry, currant, fresh herbs, sage, tobacco leaf and flowers; downright claret-like. Broad and nicely high-pitched on the palate, with complex red fruit, spice, tobacco and herb flavors lifted by graphite minerality. This highly aromatic wine really spreads out and resounds on the back end. The building tannins are firm and a bit peppery, but the finish is pliant and sweet. A very successful vintage for this flagship bottling." -Stephen Tanzer

2011 Dominus

"Good dark red. Perfumed, cool nose melds redcurrant, tobacco leaf, licorice, coffee, leather, clove oil and chicory, plus piquant notes of pepper (green, black and white!). Riper, suppler and deeper than the Napanook blend, but still with a pronounced herbal quality to the currant, tobacco leaf and clove oil flavors. More lift here too, though the dusty tannins arrive early." -Stephen Tanzer

2010 Opus One

"(the blend is based on 84% cabernet sauvignon): Good saturated medium ruby. Riper on the nose than the young 2011, offering scents of blackcurrant, minerals, graphite, licorice and leather. Wonderfully suave and silky in the mouth, with terrific concentration and aromatic lift to the savory dark berry, crushed stone and mineral flavors. Really stains the palate without leaving any impression of weight. Boasts great clarity and outstanding depth, not to mention a finesse of texture rare for California cabernet. A beauty."
