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 winemaker, Ryan Knoth, is no stranger to the top names in the industry. Having spent time working with David Abreu and Michel Rolland, Ryan has seen how some of the top wines are made. At Sinegal Estate the motto is to take a field-first, micro-farming, and fermenting approach to winemaking. With just over nine acres of grapes, the team gets to know every vine up close and personal. Using traditional methods of farming and modern methods of fermenting, they are able to meticulously craft a distinct bottle of wine that captures the true spirit of this magnificent estate.

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.

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.

The larger production appellation 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley checks in as 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Malbec and Petit Verdot, all aged 20 months in 85% new French oak. Classy notes of ripe darker fruits, bouquet garni, violets, chocolate, and earth all give way to a medium to full-bodied, nicely balanced, lengthy 2018 with good mid-palate depth and present yet ripe tannins. It shows the more tight, reserved style of the vintage yet has lots of potential. Give bottles 3-4 years and enjoy over the following decade or more.
