ALMOST A CULT-LIKE FOLLOWING!

"Slightly richer and more complex aromatically is the dense purple 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Single Vineyard. This wine has a deeper, richer, slightly broader and more savory style with extra levels of concentration and intensity. It should drink well for at least 15+ years." (WA)

Winery Notes:
Nestled on a gently sloping knoll on the north edge of Yountville, Ghost Block vineyard is named in honor of the historic Pioneer Cemetery for which it borders. The vineyard is 16 acres planted to Cabernet Sauvignon.

2013 was a superb vintage. The vines reacted beautifully to the weather which allowed for full development and maturity.

Explosive aromas of black cherry pie with hints of sweet chocolate. The underlining dry herbs and vanilla on the nose, lead into an enticing full, lush palate of mature plum, black cherry, and dark chocolate. Integrated throughout the wine is mouth-watering cranberry, and dense oak. This wine is delicious on release with round fine-grained tannins; the perfect aging qualities. Each glass invites you to the next!
