Ghost Block Oakville Estate Napa Cabernet 2018 Rated 95WS
- Calculated at Checkout
Very lush, with warmed plum sauce, cassis and linzer flavors gliding through slowly, but persistently, while cast iron and mesquite notes add range along the way. Stays on the dark side of the spectrum, with a flash of espresso crema flickering at the end amid the exotic fruit. Drink now through 2034.
The fruit for the 2018 Ghost Block Estate Cabernet Sauvignon comes from our family-owned Rock Cairn vineyard. The 33-year-old vineyard in Oakville, Napa Valley is 100% Certified Organic. This site is comprised of deep, gravelly loam with a western exposure, and the vines produce very concentrated fruit late in the season. In this particular vintage, we have blended in two of our other estate vineyards in Yountville and Oakville to bring you this magical wine.Wine Tasting Notes
