Lot #570. Fairchild Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Sigaro 2016

Description: Consists of 1 Magnum, 1.5L
Packaging: OWC.
Score: 98 JD.
"Also thrilling, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Fairchild Sigaro comes from a site north of Lake Hennessey and is 100% clone 4 Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 20-22 months in 80% new French oak. Black currants, crushed rocks, graphite, and lead pencil notes all flow to a powerful, tight, backward Cabernet that has incredible minerality and depth. It’s in a much more austere, focused style compared to the Fairchild G-III release, but it’s unquestionably at the same level of quality. Hide bottles for 4-5 years and enjoy over the following 2+ decades." Jeb Dunnuck, JebDunnuck.com, Jan 2019
Provenance: The Altitude Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $325
