Ghost Block Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
The fruit for the 2014 Ghost Block Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the family-owned Rock Cairn vineyard. The 30-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.
Intense, overt aromas of bright raspberry and hints of cassis and mint jump out of the glass. The wine is classic Napa Cabernet on the palate with enticing flavors of red fruits and dark mocha; lengthened by the integrated floral notes of violets and rose petals. These silky tannins make this wine very approachable and ready to drink upon release.
Blend: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Malbec, 5% Petit Verdot
