Winemaker Notes

Intense, overt aromas of dark plum and black cherry burst from the glass. This wine has a beautiful balance between tannin and fruit. The palate has enticing flavors of darker red fruits—black cherry, cassis, and cranberry. The structure & body is lengthened in your mouth by the well-integrated oak notes that frame this wine. The soft and silky tannins allow for a long-lasting finish, making this wine friendly and attractive to every type of winedrinker!

WS 93
Wine Spectator
Lively, with lots of ripe boysenberry and plum notes laced liberally with anise, fruitcake and sweet toast accents throughout. Not shy with the fruit, but there’s good energy for balance. Best from 2020 through 2029.
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

Blended with 3% Malbec and 3% Petit Verdot, this opens on a perfumed nose of sage, lavender and rose petal. Persistent tones of clove and baking spice complement the brooding blackberry and sanguine notes.

The Pelissa family has been fortunate to own and farm vineyards in Napa Valley for over 100 years. As 5th generation grape-growers, their hearts will always be in the vineyards, where the life of a wine begins. That’s why all 635 acres of their grapes are 100% certified organically-farmed. Ghost Block Estate Wines is their way of taking grape-growing one step further. Utilizing fruit from their family estate vineyards in the prized Oakville and Yountville appellations, we create high quality Napa Valley wines that are accessible to everyone. The wines possess an unwavering commitment to quality, a farming legacy that has lasted over a century, and their family’s longtime, unique heritage in Napa Valley. 

The Ghost Block Single Vineyard wines are created from the highest quality fruit from their family’s four finest organically-farmed vineyards, including the MorgaenLee and Ghost Block Vineyards in the Yountville AVA and the Pelissa and Rock Cairn Vineyards in the Oakville AVA. Crafted in extremely limited quantities by their longtime, talented Winemaker Kristi Koford, Ghost Block Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignons are extraordinary, collectible wines representing the pinnacle of the Pelissa family legacy.

Home to some of the most sought-after Cabernet Sauvignon in America, Napa Valley’s Oakville district stretches across the center of Napa's valley floor and foothills between the Vaca and Mayacamas Mountains. This AVA is home to the legendary To Kalon Vineyard and Martha's Vineyard, as well as many powerhouse wineries including Screaming Eagle, Silver Oak, Robert Mondavi, Opus One, Far Niente and Groth.

The climate is generally warm and agreeable, resulting in year after year of favorable vintages. Summer days see a gentle tug of war between warmer inland air and the cool air coming in from the San Pablo Bay, creating an ideal environment to grow red varieties. Oakville's diverse soils, namely ancient sea bedrock, clay and gravel, are well-drained, and perfect for high-caliber viticulture.

Cabernet here is often bottled varietally but is also popular in Bordeaux Blends. Oakville wines are known for their silky, sensual textures, structured tannins, dark and brooding fruit and lovely aromatics. These age-worthy and prestigious wines are favored by collectors throughout the world.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
