The Sinegal Estate and Winery is located on a historic Napa site in the heart of the St. Helena AVA, first planted to grape vines in 1881. Production has been continuous through many different generations of winemakers before the Sinegal family purchased the St. Helena property in 2013. A multi-million dollar expansion and modernization produced the first wines under the Sinegal label just a year later to enviable critical reviews and ratings. Today Sinegal produces four estate-bottled wines on 9 1/2 acres of organic vines, including: Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. 

Owner and General Manager David Sinegal is a keen business strategist and visionary with a passion for marketing and innovation, and an unabashedly obsessive eye for detail. He is the son of James Sinegal, the founder and former CEO & President of Costco Wholesale. David worked as an executive for Costco, Frito Lay and Starbucks before moving to St. Helena, CA to purchase and establish his own winery.

David believes that in order to do anything well, one must be fully invested. That’s why he and his family now live on the Sinegal property – so he can 'sleep at the office'. Being on the estate full-time inspires David every day to create a 360-degree guest experience with exceptional wine, delicious food, and a beautiful environment.

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon turned out beautifully. Rich, sumptuous and incredibly alluring, the 2018 will drink well right out of the gate. Dark red fruit, mocha, spice and licorice are some of the notes that build in the glass. I would give it a few years in bottle, or alternatively open it in advance. Aeration and the passage of time did wonders for the 2018. It spent 20 months in barrel, 85% new.

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is made up of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, 5% Merlot and 3% Malbec. It has a deep garnet-purple color and intense redcurrants, black raspberries, cassis, warm plums and kirsch with hints of violets, tobacco, forest floor and wild sage. The palate is full, firm, grainy and concentrated, finishing long and perfumed.

The base 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is a beauty that has both richness and elegance. Currants, blueberries, crushed violets, and a touch of minerality all emerge from this full-bodied, voluptuous, weight less 2016 that has the purity, freshness of the vintage front and center. 93-95+

This red offers a mix of sassafras, loam and anise notes, subtly inlaid into a core of steeped plum and warmed cassis flavors. A tug of bramble and singed apple wood keeps the finish grounded. Drink now through 2030. 6,000 cases made.
