Ghost Block Estate Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

$64.99

Ghost Block is the  latest newcomer to the Napa Valley Cult Cabernet scene! Limited. 94 Points Brix26:  "The 2017 Ghost Block Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits the typical distinctive flavors of Ghost Block and the Rock Cairn vineyard. Finesse oriented with an elegant balance and structure. Bright floral aromatics, such as rose petals and tobacco. A full-bodied cabernet that attacks with loads of dark berry fruits, cocoa and nutmeg. The palate is supported by the lasting finish of black cherries and coffee." Nestled on a gently sloping knoll, Ghost Block vineyard is named in honor of Napa's pioneer winemakers who rest in a tiny 150 year old cemetery on the north edge of Yountville - the epicenter of Napa Valley. Graced with perfect drainage and sunny exposure, Ghost Block Vineyard is a jewel, an heirloom, passed down through a single family for over 100 years. Coveted by celebrity winemakers, the fruit from this and nearby vineyards has been the cornerstone of many of Napa's "Cult Wines". The secret is out. Production is very limited.

A real gem. Beautiful. Definitely let it open for an hour before drinking. Poised, deep, dark cherry flavor profile and tons of structure. Nicely extracted. A great Napa cab.

Nice start but tannins dominate finish. 2017 might not be representative of this wine.
