Just rated, and irresistible to those of us who crave the big, hearty Cabs that are turned out so skillfully from the Napa Valley, the Ghost Block Oakville Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon does not disappoint. Dark, ripe, rich fruit mingled with some earthiness and spice and velvety tannins will inspire gourmet pairings. Decant your bottle for at least an hour before drinking if you're diving in now, and then fill your glasses. They will go dreamily with bacon beignets for a starter. Our ideal entree would be a grilled wagyu bavette steak with roasted fingerlings and crispy brussels sprouts with roasted peanuts, chili and scallions. What's yours?

Wine Spectator:  "Features some frank, nearly heady ripeness, with steeped plum, açaí berry and blackberry compote flavors bursting forth, followed quickly by bramble and licorice snap notes. The finish delivers a late kick of fruit and pulls in a mouthwatering apple wood accent. For fans of the big, bold style. Best from 2021 through 2034. 4,500 cases made." Jul 2020

Winery:  "Very elegant and appealing aromas beam from your glass. This wine has juicy red cherry notes, along with ripe, red berry flavors. Cocoa and vanilla notes are well integrated into the fruit components. The silky, soft tannins confirm the harmonious balance between alcohol and tannin - creating an overall perfect balance in this wine. The finish is lengthy and beautiful, you won’t want to stop sipping on this 2017 Oakville Cabernet.

The fruit for the 2017 Ghost Block Estate Cabernet Sauvignon comes from our family-owned Rock Cairn vineyard. The 32-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 four of our other estate vineyards in Yountville and Oakville to bring you this magical wine."
