Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

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.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

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.

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.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon


Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
