2019 Sinegal Estate Cabernet
2019 Sinegal Estate Cabernet The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is every bit as magnificent as it was last year. A heady, statuesque wine, the 2019 captures all the pedigree of the vintage. Inky red cherry fruit, mocha, licorice and spice race across the palate. The 2019 is bright, deep and powerful, with exceptional balance and tons of class. It’s a stunning wine, to say the least. The move towards a slightly less pushed style, with less overt oak signatures, has paid off big time. This is a fabulous showing. 98pts Galloni/Vinous
I loved the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon, and it’s certainly going to over-deliver. Terrific notes of cassis, white flowers, graphite, and classy oak give way to a rich, medium to full-bodied red with classic Cabernet character, beautiful balance, ripe tannins, and a great finish. JD
This is a must for Napa Cab lovers. In 2013 the Sinegal Family was able to purchase one of the original great wine properties in St Helena from the Wolf Family. The original Inglewood Estate whish began in 1879 and started planting vines in 1879. This is a magnificent historical property that is right at the base of the Mayacamas Mountain Range. The property is run by David Sinegal who is a brilliant business strategist and visionary. He has put a Napa dream together to ensure success. Jim Barbour was hired to plant and manage the vineyard. He is responsible for maintaining (and planting) some of Napa’s most fabulous vineyards, including Blankiet, Fantesca, Grace Family, and Hundred Acre. He hired Ryan Knoth to make the wine who had the honor of working under David Abreu, Michel Rolland, and Fredrik Johansson at Staglin Family Vineyard and Jim Barbour and Philippe Melka at Gandona Winery. They are all legendary winemakers mainly working with Napa Cab. He hired Tony Biagi to consult who was named by 2020 Wine Maker of the year in Napa by Gallon and has or does make wine for Plumpjack, Cade and Hourglass.
We have the 2019 Sinegal Estate Cabernet just in and Galloni like the wine so much, he gave it the highest score of any 2019 Napa cab under a hundred bucks! He gave the wine a huge 98pts making this one of the great values in Cult Quality Napa Cabs and now for the best part, we have the wine down to $79.99. The 2019 vintage is a vintage to buy. The Wine Spectator has given the vintage 97pts with excellent structure worthy of the cellar. The vintage is a win!
A huge no-brainer if you love deep, powerful, layered and highly complex, opulent cabernet.
