Vineyard Notes

The Ghost Block vineyard, named in honor of the historic Pioneer Cemetery for which it borders, is nestled on a gently sloping knoll on the north edge of Yountville. This highly sought after vineyard is composed of 18 acres of unique, rarely found, exposed vertical bedding of tertiary volcanics. It is southeast facing, receiving mid-morning and afternoon sun and cooling in the evening and early morning with down valley marine influence. Planted solely to Cabernet Sauvignon it is 100% certified organic and the crown jewel of the family’s 635 planted acres.

Tasting Notes

Seductive aromas of black cherry, blackberry compote and plum sauce lure you in as you take the first sip. The wine is seamless from start to finish and fills out the palate with dark fruit continuing as the framework yet the harmonious layers of mocha and cassis along with hints of sage and tobacco leaf are what make the wine alluring and irresistible.

93 Points Wine Spectator: “Ripe and sleek, with a tightly focused core of cassis and cherry reduction supported by well-integrated applewood and iron notes that extend the finish nicely. Understated style that is very precise. Drink now through 2030.”
