1995 Phelps Insignia

1995 Phelps Insignia: Great nose, great finish, mediocre attack in the front of the palate. Starts a bit weak and seemed to have a hint of almost candied fruit. Bit of a hole up front that started to go away with air time but never completely went away. I have had much better bottle of Insignia so I had fairly high expectations that were not met. Still this had tons of cigar box character with a very rich palate dominated by the chocolate from the Merlot component. 92/100
