Which vintage?

I know this isn't the best year, but it was the 03 and it rocked my world. It was surreal how it coated my palate with delicious Napa fruit and the finish went on forever. I honestly remember thinking after my first sip that I hoped the rest of our party didn't care for it so I could have more than a glass.


I think 2003 was the first vintage of Phelps Insignia I tried...about 4-5 years ago when I was seriously getting into wine and wow. Then I had 1998 Redigaffi...then 1990 Montosoli...seeing what is possible with wine is an amazing experience.
