Historic Estate Introduces Details Wines with Aim to Expand Access to High Quality Wine
St. Helena, CA, February 9, 2021 – Sinegal Estate, the Napa winery and historic estate led by Jim and David Sinegal, is launching the next evolution of its mission for “better quality at a better price” through the extension of its portfolio with DETAILS Wines by Sinegal Estate. DETAILS Wines is a stand-alone brand helmed by the dedicated team at Sinegal Estate, created out of ambition to expand access to high quality wines.
DETAILS Wines follows the 1,403 -step-approach cultivated at Sinegal Estate to source grapes and produce its eponymous 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon. Created from carefully cultivated Sonoma County vineyard sites that reflect the best of the region’s hillside terroirs, the 2018 DETAILS Cabernet Sauvignon is a bold varietal blend that includes Merlot, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot from select sites in Sonoma Valley, Knights Valley, Alexander Valley, Dry Creek, and Chalk Hill.
“The genesis for DETAILS – the wine, the name and the label itself, is based on our meticulous and methodical approach to each step of the winemaking process while always allowing room for the human touch of our winemaking team led by Ryan Knoth” states Sinegal Estate Co-Founder and Managing Partner David Sinegal. “Delivering on that premise requires obsessive attention to detail and that commitment to excellence is symbolized in the goat’s head with hieroglyph icons of the process, a nod to ‘the devil is in the details’, a cornerstone of my father’s business ethos which he’s instilled in me.”
DETAILS Wines’ approach to winemaking combines the artisan craft of old-world winemaking techniques with the advanced innovations of modern technology, resulting in a luxurious Cabernet that appeals to a broader, more diverse group of wine consumers. DETAILS Wines’ goal is to provide accessibility to the wine and the winemaking process, with a nationwide DTC and retail presence that makes the wine widely available and a unique label symbolizing the commitment to the intricate steps and dynamic people behind each bottle.
“When we set out making the first vintage of DETAILS, we had a clear idea to make a quality-driven wine that appeals to the growing audience of inquisitive and discerning wine consumers. The goal with DETAILS is to offer an accessible Cabernet which has been crafted with the same care and intensity as the wines at Sinegal Estate. We think we’ve achieved that in DETAILS. The wine has aromas of ripe raspberry and black plum, followed by the wonderful savory notes of allspice and cinnamon. On the palate the wine has a lovely texture and richness with silky tannins. It’s really meant to be a crowd pleaser with structure, sweetness and length.” states Sinegal Estate Winemaker Ryan Knoth.
DETAILS Wines Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 is available for purchase nationwide through the brand’s website and broad retail and restaurant distribution. Suggested retail price is $40. For more information and additional details on availability, please visit www.detailswines.com.
