Sinegal Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
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.
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.
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."
Wine AdvocateMade up of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 5% Malbec, 4% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet-purple in color with baked blackcurrants, dried black cherries, mocha and prunes with hints of fried herbs and cigars. Medium-bodied, it is a little hollow and chewy and finishes abruptly.
