Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 92

The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate reveals greater delineation, power and structure than the regular bottling. Tobacco, sweet herbs, cassis and plums are some of the notes that flow from this beautifully delineated, striking Cabernet Sauvignon. I especially like the length and pure finesse of the finish. This is a strong showing from Ghost Block

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.
