Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Sinegal Estate Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

The 2016 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a blockbuster of a wine, opening with explosive aromas of crushed red currants, Chambord, and black tea leaf; enveloped in layers of sweet cigar box and cocoa beans. The full-bodied palate displays flavors of macerated blackberries and blueberries with hints of graphite and dried herbs, leading to a dense tannin structure and long and bright finish. This wine exhibits both power and elegance and has the ageing potential of 15 or more years. Possibly the finest example of a wine produced off the estate property to date.

Critic Ratings

Jeb Dunnuck Review - Tasted 1/31/2019 - Rated 99:
A selection of the top terroirs on the property and a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Malbec, and 7% Petit Verdot, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve was brought up all in new oak. Deep purple-colored, with a rocking bouquet of black fruits, espresso, graphite, and crushed rock, this borderline perfect wine has full-bodied richness, a seamless, seamless texture, plenty of tannins, and a monster finish. This is an absolutely killer Napa Cabernet! It’s already hard to resist, yet it’s capable of evolving for 2-3 decades.

James Suckling Review - Published November 19, 2018 - Rated 92:
Some lightly tarry nuances across ripe dark plums, chocolate and earthy black truffle, leading to a flavorful and attractively concentrated, dark-berry and chocolate-flavored palate. A blend of 83 per cent cabernet sauvignon, 10 per cent malbec and seven per cent petit verdot. Drink or hold.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate Review - Published 13th Dec 2018 - Rated 97:
Blended of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Malbec and 7% Petit Verdot, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve has a profound nose of crème de cassis, baked cherries, earth, cigar box, charcuterie and menthol. The palate is full-bodied, rich and concentrated with firm and fine-grained tannins, finishing long and layered. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown
