2016 Sigaro

98 PTS ~ Jeb Dunnuck

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.
Drink 2023-2043.

96+ PTS ~ Robert Parker WA

The deep garnet-black colored Fairchild 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Sigaro opens with somewhat shy notes of warm black currants, dried mulberries and wild blueberries with hints of plum pudding, spice box, cardamom, wood smoke, black pepper and hoisin. Full-bodied and tightly wound in the mouth, the fruit vibrates with compelling energy and a firm frame of ripe, grainy tannins with just enough freshness, finishing long and minerally.
Drink 2024-2050.

2015 Sigaro

97 PTS ~ Robert Parker Wine Advocate

Very deep inky-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Sigaro delivers ripe cassis, black plums and fragrant earth notes with touches of bay leaves, mossy bark and tobacco leaf. Medium to full-bodied with a rock-solid frame of wonderfully fine-grained tannins and lovely freshness, it has a great core of vibrant black fruit flavors, finishing long and pure. Drink 2017-2038.

2014 Sigaro

95 PTS ~ ROBERT PARKER JR

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Sigaro comes from a north Lake Hennessey – St. Helena Vineyard planted with Cabernet Sauvignon clones 4 and 7. This is a wine of similar power, richness and texture, but displays slightly more minerality, maybe a slighter cooler climate mouthfeel, but that’s splitting hairs. It is a wine of exceptional intensity, low acidity, ripe tannin, and a long finish, with plenty of blackberry, charcoal and white chocolate notes. Drink it over the next 15-20 years. Drink 2017-2036.

2013 Sigaro

96 PTS ~ ROBERT PARKER JR

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Sigaro is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 100% new French oak for 20 months prior to being bottled. This is a beautiful wine, like so many 2013s, with an inky purple color, restrained, but intense and ripe notes of blackberry and cassis, along with licorice, graphite, and loamy, earthy undertones. The wine has fabulous concentration, beautiful purity, adequate acidity and a long, long finish. This is a terrific wine from a vineyard near the Melbury Vineyard of Bond Estates. Drink 2016-2045.

2012 Sigaro

94-96 PTS ~ ROBERT PARKER JR

The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Sigaro is much deeper and more resonant than the 2011. A huge, explosive Cabernet, the 2012 is loaded with class, personality and tons of sheer extract. There is a lot to look forward to here, but readers will have to be patient, as the wine is very compact at this stage. An exotic mélange of dark red fruit, spices and minerals flesh out on the huge, structured finish.
