Sinegal Estate Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
The 2016 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a blockbuster of a wine, opening with explosive aromas of crushed red currants, Chambord, and black tea leaf; enveloped in layers of sweet cigar box and cocoa beans. The full-bodied palatedisplays flavors of macerated blackberries and blueberries with hints of graphite and dried herbs, leading to a dense tannin structure and long and bright finish. This wine exhibits both power and elegance and has the ageing potential of 15 or more years.
Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Malbec, 7% Petit Verdot

Sinegal Estate is a family-owned Saint Helena based historic 30-acre property, originally known as the Inglewood Estate. Alton Williams acquired it in 1879 and planted the first vines here in 1881. Over the generations, the estate has passed through four separate families with the family being the fifth family, purchasing the property in 2013. The skeleton key on every label of Sinegal wines represents the importance of legacy and preserving the heritage of these families, as it is representative of the original key that was passed down to us when they acquired the estate.
Since 2013, Sinegal has been focused on integrating innovation and technology into their winemaking. The state-of-the-art winery ensures total precession - complete with a cutting-edge digital optical sorting machine, custom-built automated fermentation tanks, and a 6,800 square foot cave with temperature-controlled portals.
Wine is an immersive experience, it captures the story of the land told through the voice of the wine itself. Sinegal is committed to the relentless pursuit of quality, and where tradition meets innovation from the vineyard to the cellar. The stewardship of this historic property honors the legacy of the founding generations, celebrating the estate’s heritage of more than 139 years
