We really love Sinegal. Well crafted juice. Always complex. The 2015 vintage pips this. Notes across vintages are consistent.

I’ve waited a good long while to finally have this wine and I’m very happy with it. It definitely came “full on” after a quick decant. Ripe and well-extracted fruit, beautifully structured, gorgeous nose, deep garnet color and a very pleasing finish. Highly recommended. A bargain at any price.

Day 3 in Napa in the books! Running a day behind on notes...Napa time runs slow AND fast!

Has everything you want in a Napa Cab. Loads of blueberry and blackberry with licorice and chocolate aromatics. Big and structured while being super plush on the palate. Sweet oak and tobacco with savory notes. Nice.

On the nose, ruby, ripe fruits of; blackberries, dark cherries, black raspberries, blue fruits & plum. Dark berry cola, fruit tea, light smoke, sweet light tarry, dark rich soils, black licorice with purple and dark red fresh flowers with violets.

The body is full. The tannins very smooth but tarry & sticky. The wine is beautiful, delicate and feminine over the palate. Gorgeous ripe currant & cassis. Blackberries, dark cherries, black raspberries, blue fruits & plum. Dark berry cola, fruit tea, light smoke, sweet light tarry, dark rich soils, dark & milk chocolate, dry clay, suede leather, touch of fresh tobacco, black licorice, dark spice with heat and purple, blue and dark red fresh, perfume flowers with violets. The acidity is and beautiful. The long finish is soft, gorgeous sexy, elegant and lasts minutes.

Photos of, one of the old restored Victorian houses on the property, Sinegal signage so you know your there, barrel caves that remind me of the ones at Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, club members area with pizza oven and bocci ball court.

Very good. Strong enough for a meal but not necessary to drink with food.

A great Napa Cabernet that rivals Caymus. The Caymus is still a notch above with is seamless and silky smooth tannins.

1 hour decant. The epitome of cassis on the nose. Heavy bodied and serious concentration. Blue and black fruits, earthy and tobacco tones go in and out. Nice structure but certainly very drinkable today. <$100
