Sinegal Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Jeb Dunnuck: "Leading off the barrel samples, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is a charming, forward effort that has medium to full-bodied notes of cassis and high-toned blue fruits, flowers, forest floor, and hints of vanilla bean. It’s nicely balanced, has terrific tannins, and a great finish." Jan 2019
Winery: "The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits elegant aromas of ripe raspberry, plumb and black cherry, with notes of rose petal, cinnamon and all spice. The subtle oak spice tones are well integrated with the fruit and floral aromas in this wine. On the palate there is a silky texture with smooth tannins and long lingering finish. Flavors of candied cherries, and blackberry kirsch are intermixed with secondary notes of vanilla bean, mocha and coca nibs. The 2017 is showing well at a young age, however the wine has a nice tannin structure to age gracefully for the next 7-10 years."
