Ghost Block Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Nestled on a gently sloping knoll, 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 excellent drainage and sunny exposure, Ghost Block Vineyard has been passed down through a single family for over 100 years. Coveted by celebrity winemakers, the fruit from this vineyard and nearby vineyards has been the cornerstone of many of Napa's 'Cult Wines'. Ghost Block specializes in Cabernets from Yountville and Oakville, and all of their vineyards are family owned and organically certified. Production is very limited, always based on the best fruit.

Wine EnthusiastBlended with 3% Malbec and 3% Petit Verdot, this opens on a perfumed nose of sage, lavender and rose petal. Persistent tones of clove and baking spice complement the brooding blackberry and sanguine notes.
