The latest newcomer to the Napa Valley Cult Cabernet scene! Limited.
Ghost Block vineyard is named in honor of Napa's pioneer winemakers who rest in a tiny 150 year old cemetery on the north edge of Yountville - the epicenter of Napa Valley. Graced with perfect drainage and sunny exposure, Ghost Block Vineyard is a jewel, 16 acres planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, an heirloom, passed down through a single family for over 100 years. Coveted by celebrity winemakers, the fruit from this and nearby vineyards has been the cornerstone of many of Napa's "Cult Wines". The secret is out. Production is very limited.
2017 was a superb vintage. The vines reacted beautifully to the weather which allowed for full development and maturity. Explosive aromas of black cherry pie with hints of sweet chocolate. The underlining dry herbs and vanilla on the nose, lead into an enticing full, lush palate of mature plum, black cherry, and dark chocolate.Integrated throughout the wine is mouth-watering cranberry, and dense oak. This wine is delicious on release with round fine grained tannins; the perfect aging qualities. Each glass invites you to the next!
