New vintage of the Sinegal Estate's Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. Dark and deep purplish red. Love the complexity of this nose, layers of dark cocoa, pepper, cassis and cigars. Heavy tannins (8/10) and full bodied. Tight and gritty texture that needs a few years to develop. A little smoky with black cherries, vanilla, cinnamon and tobacco. Long and lingering finish. Drink from 2019 till 2033. (94+)

Dark and deep purplish ruby red. Complex and layered nose with tons of black tea, not earl grey. Lots of blackberries and plums as well as smoked wood and leather. Insanely long and high intensity, it just would not let up. Thick, plush and voluptuous palate. Just what you would expect from a wine of this caliber. Tons of thick creamy dark cocoa and blackberries, even more black fruit. Heavy tannins (8/10) and full bodied. This needs a bit more bottle age to get a bit more rounded but stunning right now. Super long finish. Absolutely delicious. Drink till 2036.

Big beefy extracted oaky. Would be interesting to try again in 3-5 years. Will it age gracefully?

Absolutely textbook Napa Cabernet, briary nose with a whiff of alcohol. Coffee, blue-Black fruit and dark earthy tones. Almost too young to score but this is so good...

Drinking this wine is evocative of enjoying a warm rich cup of cream. Supple and luxurious. Cedar nose. Soft dark fruit with hints of vanilla on the palate.
