95 Points Wine Spectator:

“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. 4,500 cases made.”

Very elegant and appealing fruit aromas beam from your glass. This wine has beautiful dark red cherry notes, along with ripe, red berry flavors. Cassis, licorice, 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 it hits every point on your palate, you won’t want to stop sipping on this 2018 Oakville Cabernet.
The fruit for the 2018 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 (across the street from Mustard’s Grill). This site is comprised of deep, gravelly loam with a western exposure, and the vines produce very concentrated fruit late in the season. The 2018 growing season was slow and steady, without dramatic climate events. This allowed us to pick all varieties at their peak of ripeness and without time pressures. The resulting Estate Cabernet is balanced and focused, with dominant fruit flavors accented with herbal and spicy notes. The oak frames and defines the dense, firm tannins, leaving a long, beautiful finish.
