K&L Notes

According to Napa lore, the spirit of George C. Yount, credited as the first person to plant vines in the Valley and for whom the town of Yountville is named, inhabits what has since been named the "Ghost Block" vineyard, wandering the vines at night and keeping watch over the valley. (The fact that this particular slope on the northern edge of Yountville also borders the Pioneer cemetery undoubtedly contributes to this site's haunted reputation). Winemaker Kristi Koford says of the wine: "Explosive aromas that is a berry burst of fruit lift from the glass. Dominated by the blackberry notes, this wine has a soft entry in your mouth; that is smooth and fills out your palate into a long, lush & beautiful finish. The focus of this wine was balance and structure — after you achieve those, the wine comes together beautifully. The oak is well-integrated with all the juicy dark berry notes. 2017 is one of our favorite vintages to date!"
