Beautiful stuff. Much better than the 97 I opened a few weeks back. I'm thinking that some of these blends are not set up for long term like I once thought. I can't imagine this getting any better.

I'm surprised by the post on the 97 as I have found it to be sound and tasty.Had the last bottle of the 94 last year and was still alive and well. Insignia is a blend and ages it's patootie off as does the Profile and many others. IMHO I think you may have had a comprimised bottle. Will open a 97 this week-end and report. WW

I think the Weener's eyes are going now. Must be an age thing. GAD's talking about the Justin Isoceles, not the Phelps Insignia.

Seems KC's getting the " Glance over the reply and hit the keyboard fast " syndrome. I was fully aware the wine in question was the Iso....I just expanded on the observation made that blends mite not age as well as thot. WW

I thought foodie was typing that I should buy wine by the box from now on. Now I'm really confused... Or was it Hotwine... [img][/img]

Had the 97 Iso for lunch today and assert my earlier observation that your bottle must have had some BAD mistreatment. This wine exhibits a nose packed with floral notes, luscious plummy-cherry aromas and terrific mineral-spicy underlays. The nose all comes over on the palate along with some jammy-vanilla undertones. It has a velvety entry, solid center and a long 4&1/2-lapper finish. After 2&1/2 hours still was evolviong with the soft tannins holding. Near the top of its' game but nowhere in the region of disintegrating. A solid 95/93. 43 by the box. 13.9%alc. WW

What a bummer. I had the bottle since release at 55 so it wasn't storage. I guess it was just a bad bottle. [img][/img]
