One of Napa’s oldest Cabernet vineyards is still producing great gems!

Ghost Block has been scaring many of us in a good way.  The Quality/Price ratios are in tune like the best performers in a ballet.  As always, only a very limited production of this Oakville producer is available 

Nestled on a gently sloping knoll on the north edge of Yountville, Ghost Block vineyard is named in honor of the historic Pioneer Cemetery which it borders. According to local legend, George C. Yount, was the first person to plant a grapevine in the valley, wandering the hillside overseeing the industry he himself founded on this very land. 

In the early 1980s, after a summer day of working in his grandfather’s vineyards, the  current owner, Andy Hoxsey, was in his mid 20s, enjoying a cold beer at the legendary local Yountville bar, Pancha’s.  There, he began a conversation with a retired veteran, who asked Andy if he farmed that vineyard next to the Yountville cemetery. He replied, “yes sir, I do.” The veteran, who may have had one too many beers, proceeded to tell Andy about the ghost he had seen leaving the Pioneer Cemetery walking up the hillside through that very vineyard, which he referred to as the cemetery field, towards the top of the Yountville hill. The veteran told Andy that the ghost was the spirit of George C. Yount (founder of Yountville, who planted the first grapevine in Napa Valley in 1839), who haunted that vineyard and made his way to the top of the hill to overlook the town he founded. That next morning Andy went to trademark the name “Ghost Block.” Thus the two legends were born, the ghost of George C. Yount and Ghost Block Vineyard.

Winery Notes: “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. This site is comprised of deep, gravelly loam with a western exposure, and the vines produce very concentrated fruit late in the season.

Winemaker Tasting Notes: 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 resultant 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.
