"Bright plum and cassis notes race through, lined with a mouthwatering savory edge and backed by a stony mineral detail on the finish. Solidly grippy and should age well. Best from 2021 through 2030. 1,000 cases made. — JM" (WS)

"Soft, plush tannins surround a creamy texture of baked plum, cinnamon and cedar, the wine Old World in dried herb and sage components. Full bodied, it showcases the variety from the producer's long-owned estate. Virginie Boone" (WE)

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

Tasting Notes:
Explosive aromas of black cherry pie and juicy blackberries. The underlining sweet chocolate and vanilla on the nose, lead into an enticing full, lush palate of mature plum and blackberry. Integrated throughout the wine is mouth-watering currant, 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!
