Sinegal Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Jeb DunnuckThe 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon was brought up in 85% new French oak. This black-fruited beauty has tons of blackcurrants, scorched earth, graphite, and hints of violets. It opens up beautifully with time in the glass, has beautiful purity and elegance, silky tannins, and a great finish. Elegant and seamless as well as concentrated, this attractive Cabernet will keep for 20-25 years.
Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is made up of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, 5% Merlot and 3% Malbec. It has a deep garnet-purple color and intense redcurrants, black raspberries, cassis, warm plums and kirsch with hints of violets, tobacco, forest floor and wild sage. The palate is full, firm, grainy and concentrated, finishing long and perfumed.
Wine SpectatorThe base 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is a beauty that has both richness and elegance. Currants, blueberries, crushed violets, and a touch of minerality all emerge from this full-bodied, voluptuous, weight less 2016 that has the purity, freshness of the vintage front and center.
VinousThe 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon has turned out beautifully. Dark, supple and generous on the palate, the 2016 possesses terrific depth and textural richness. Black cherry, plum, bittersweet chocolate, dark spice and menthol flesh out in this super-expressive, inviting Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2016 can be enjoyed young or cellared for a number of years. Dollops of Cabernet Sauvignon from Georges III and Merlot from Oak Knoll round out the blend."
