In the heart of the Napa Valley lies a property that, in just a few short years, has made many of the valley's "blue chip" Cabernet Sauvignon producers stop and take notice. That property...is Sinegal! Located in St Helena, just west of Highway 29, the Sinegal estate is on some of the most coveted land in the valley. Their neighbors include Dana Estates, and the famed Beckstoffer Dr. Crane and Beckstoffer Las Piedras vineyards (as a reference, these three properties each have 100-point wines tied to them). Sinegal's grapes develop highly-complex flavors, dazzling aromatics, and wonderful texture. But yields are small, so the resulting wines are brimming with concentration!
At the winemaking helm is Ryan Knoth. Ryan has had the pleasure of working under the expert tutelage of David Abreu, Michel Rolland, Jim Barbour, and Philippe Melka. Any up-and-coming winemaker would jump at the chance to work with any one of these superstars, but Ryan got to work with them all!
ANTONIO GALLONI 98 POINTS - "My tasting at Sinegal was one of the highlights of the month I spent in Napa Valley. Winemaker Ryan Knoth simply crushed the vintage. In particular, the wines have all the opulence they showed a few years ago, when David Sinegal bought the property, but with an extra kick of energy that makes them so compelling."
"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."
JEB DUNNUCK 94-96 POINTS - "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."
