Sinegal - Napa Valley - Sauvignon Blanc
Overview: Thirty majestic acres in the heart of Napa Valley – once a welcoming landmark for the Pony Express – is now home to the Sinegal Estate Winery. The philosophy of our founders, Jim & David Sinegal, is to honor both tradition and innovation. They have fully restored the 1881 Victorian home and its companion guesthouse on the estate and are taking meticulous care farming the twenty-plus year-old vines they inherited when they purchased the historic property in 2013.
And they have shown an equal commitment to making the best wine possible, integrating innovation and technology into winemaking practices; our new state-of-the-art winery is replete with an optical sorter and custom-built automated fermentation tanks and our process involves no less than 1,403 steps from vine to bottle.
Proprietor, David Sinegal, and Winemaker, Ryan Knoth, are both steadfast in producing wines approachable in their youth (yet fit to age) that capture the true spirit our magnificent estate. A Bordeaux varietal house at heart, Sinegal Estate produces an exquisite Cabernet Sauvignon, Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, and some of the best Cabernet Franc the Napa Valley has ever seen.
Tasting Notes: On the nose, aromas of white peach and ripe honeydew melon, are intertwined with notes of delicate orange blossom and lightly caramelized crème brûlée. Subtle hints of mint leaf and wet stone can also be found lingering in the background. On the palate, racy flavors of green apple, grapefruit and lime zest awaken the taste buds. As the wine opens up, subtle flavors of lemongrass and honeycomb combine with brioche, as the sur lie ageing becomes evident. In its youth, the bright acid and exotic nose shine through, but with time more complex flavors and aromas will develop making for a truly memorable wine.
