Sweet licorice, roasted herb, graphite, and creme de cassis aromas soar from the glass of this full-bodied, inky/ruby/purple-colored Cabernet. Its velvety tannins, layered, full-bodied mouthfeel, and complex, smooth, sumptuous style suggest it can be consumed now and over the next 10-12+ years.

A big, rich, expressive style that's intense and concentrated, with ripe, firm, vibrant black cherry, blackberry, currant, anise and spicy, toasty oak, which adds a nice flavor dimension.

This wine continues to impress. Easily a 94 point wine. Massive caramel leather and cherry greets the nose. Medium body with slight tannins grace the palate. Long finish. Onto my 2007's

About This Producer


Nestled on a gently sloping knoll on the north edge of Yountville, Ghost Block vineyard is named in honor of the historic Pioneer Cemetery which it borders. According to local lore George C. Yount, who was the first person to plant a grapevine in the Valley, wanders the hillside overseeing the vast spectrum of an industry he himself founded on this very land.

Ghost Block is a premier, limited production Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, using only the very best fruit to express the vineyard site.
