2008 Ghost Block "Estate" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1069025 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate reveals greater delineation, power and structure than the regular bottling. Tobacco, sweet herbs, cassis and plums are some of the notes that flow from this beautifully delineated, striking Cabernet Sauvignon. I especially like the length and pure finesse of the finish. This is a strong showing from Ghost Block. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2011)

91 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark The Pelissa family named this brand after the property they purchased in 1938, part of George Yount's original land grant. This wine includes fruit from that Yountville vineyard as well as the family's Rock Cairn Vineyard in Oakville. It's a lean and sophisticated Cabernet with dark plum flavors and sweet scents of cedar. The tannins are as black as coal, needing age to meld into the wine. Inner quote mark (10/2011)

K&L Notes

This wine is made from organically grown fruit sourced from the Rock Cairn vineyard in Oakville, one of the Napa Valley's top sub-appellations. Yields were low in 2008 because of funky weather through the growing season, but that just adds to the concentration of this powerful Cab. The bottling from this vintage smells like rose petals, tobacco, and Asian spices mingled with cassis and cherry, and the aromas follow seamlessly to the palate, where there's just a hint of bittersweet chocolate and a squeeze of citrus that brightens everything up. Full-bodied with supple tannins, the finish is long, with lingering spice and roasted coffee bean notes.
