Insignia at Iridescence

Last evening we had dinner at Iridescence in Detroit’s Motor City Casino. In addition to the beautiful setting on the 16th floor of the hotel, we had a wonderful wine from Joseph Phelps Vineyards. The 2008 Insignia was mostly a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with a little Petit Merlot and even less Merlot added. The wine was a dark purple color and had black fruit and a hint of flowers on the aroma. The fruity taste and easy to drink wine made this a good wine to drink by itself. We did have it during our meal and it paired well with salmon, lobster and chicken, even though one usually would not pair it with those wines. Prior to our entrées, we were served a passion fruit sorbet. The Insignia was put on hold for a moment. The sorbet reminded me of a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and would have matched well with the Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc I made a couple years ago. However there were only a couple teaspoons of sorbet so we were soon back to the Insignia.
