Today, we were lucky enough to lock into a needle in a haystack. A 98-point Napa Valley Cabernet courtesy of a winemaker who came from Michel Rolland, Staglin and David Abreu, and Jim Barbour, arguably the most famous and well-respected vineyard manager in the U.S. Robert Parker, Jr. himself warned all his readers a few years back, “these are all super impressive wines, so consumers should get on the Sinegal bandwagon before it becomes better known.”
Today’s wine is a complete bombshell, as you can imagine. It has outpointed Napa Cabernets that go for quadruple the price or more… a lot of them. Antonio Galloni totally raved in his 98-point review calling the wine “magnificent” “capturing all the pedigree of the vintage” and a “fabulous showing.” He even called his tasting at Sinegal one of the highlights of his month spent reviewing wines in Napa. What we have is really that good.
The 2019 Sinegal Cabernet Sauvignon is a stud. Even at $90/bottle it offers one of the absolute best values of any varietal in any wine region in the world made in 2019. It’s flawless. Rated higher than or the the same as Colgin, Bryant Family, Ovid, Abreu and Bond in the vintage– and available at just a fraction of the price. This is a collector’s item you simply cannot pass up, it’s got everything you’re looking for in a Napa Valley Cab.

98 Points, Antonio Galloni – Vinous
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is every bit as magnificent as it was last year. A heady, statuesque wine, the 2019 captures all the pedigree of the vintage. Inky red cherry fruit, mocha, licorice and spice race across the palate. The 2019 is bright, deep and powerful, with exceptional balance and tons of class. It’s a stunning wine, to say the least. The move towards a slightly less pushed style, with less overt oak signatures, has paid off big time. This is a fabulous showing.
