2017 SINEGAL ESTATE CABERNET SAUVIGNON

$100.00

Sinegal’s core focus is on the micro-farming of their tiny 9-acre vineyard, which was planted by Jim Barbour, one of the top viticulturists in the Country. Jim’s list of clients includes icons like Hundred Acre and Grace Family to list a few. This site was initially planted in the late 1800s, and it’s strategically positioned just South of Lewelling Vineyard, along the Southwestern rim of St. Helena AVA. The area produces Bordeaux varietals of stunning quality, and here’s a terrific opportunity to try their Cabernet. 

The winery’s pursuit of perfection begins in the vineyard, but it doesn’t stop there. The wines are made by Ryan Knoth, who gained valuable experience working under the tutelage of icons David Abreu, Michel Rolland, and Fredrik Johansson at Staglin Vineyards. He also worked with Jim Barbour and Philippe Melka at Gandona Estate.

Built around a core of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon that’s heightened with all of Bordeaux’s big five varietals, including Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot, and Petit Verdot, the 2017 is stunningly balanced, long and beautifully persistent. This wine aged for 20 months in French oak and it’s drinking beautifully right now.

JEB DUNNUCK | 93-95 POINTS:

Jeb Dunnuck Notes, “Leading off the barrel samples, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is a charming, forward effort that has medium to full-bodied notes of cassis and high-toned blue fruits, flowers, forest floor, and hints of vanilla bean. It’s nicely balanced, has terrific tannins, and a great finish.” JEB DUNNUCK 93-95 POINTS

Antonio Galloni Notes, “Sinegal’s 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is dark and plush. Black cherry, mocha, leather, licorice, chocolate and spice are all amped up in a lush, forward Cabernet that will drink well upon release. This is an especially bold, juicy style. Sweet floral and spice notes add freshness to the dark red cherry fruit in this expressive Cabernet Sauvignon.” VINOUS 93 POINTS
