"Tilts to exotic in profile, with mulberry and boysenberry compote notes liberally scored with singed anise, fruitcake and Christmas pudding notes. A tarry coating on the finish adds more oomph, while the overall polished feel makes this accessible now." 92 Points Wine Spectator
The fruit for the 2018 Ghost Block Estate Cabernet Sauvignon comes from our family-owned Rock Cairn vineyard. The 33-year-old vineyard in Oakville, Napa Valley is 100% Certified Organic. This site is comprised of deep, gravelly loam with a western exposure, and the vines produce very concentrated fruit late in the season. In this particular vintage, we have blended in two of our other estate vineyards in Yountville and Oakville to bring you this magical wine.
TASTING NOTES Very elegant and appealing fruit aromas beam from your glass. This wine has beautiful dark red cherry notes, along with ripe, red berry flavors.
