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.
Sinegal's 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is dark and plush. Black cherry, mocha, leather, licorice, chocolate and spice are all amped up in a lush, forward Cabernet that will drink well upon release. This is an especially bold, juicy style. Sweet floral and spice notes add freshness to the dark red cherry fruit in this expressive Cabernet Sauvignon.
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits elegant aromas of ripe raspberry, plumb and black cherry, with notes of rose petal, cinnamon and allspice. 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 a long lingering finish. Flavors of candied cherries, and blackberry kirsch are intermixed with secondary notes of vanilla bean, mocha and coca nibs.
