Winemaker Notes

Explosive aromas of black cherry, plum, and juicy blackberries left from the glass. The underlining mocha and vanilla extract on the nose, lead into an enticing full, balanced, and lush palate of flavors that match the aromas. The wine is mouth-watering with well-integrated oak, creating an elegant and pleasant long-lasting finishing that continues to invite you to the next sip!

COMMENTARY: The 2016 Ghost Block Cabernet Sauvignon shows up with excellent richness. TASTING NOTES: This wine is packed and generous on the palate, yet it stays restrained and pleasing in the finish. Its aromas and flavors of super-ripened fruit and oak should pair it well with a Cajun-accented grilled ribeye. (Tasted: September 4, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Enthusiast
Soft, plush tannins surround a creamy texture of baked plum, cinnamon and cedar, the wine Old World in dried herb and sage components. Full bodied, it showcases the variety from the producer's long-owned estate.

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.

One of Napa Valley's most historic sub-appellations, Yountville spreads through some of the valley's ideal cooler sites and enjoys success with a handful of different and significant grape varieties.

Syrah competes strongly with Cabernet Sauvignon here for optimal vineyard real estate followed by Pinot noir, Pinot blanc and Sauvignon blanc.

This sub-AVA of Napa Valley is rich in the history that makes Napa Valley what it is today, and not just for red wines. Moët & Chandon entered the California winemaking business via Yountville in 1973 with the establishment Domaine Chandon. Their goal has always been to produce top quality méthode champenoise sparkling wines.

Christian Moueix, originally responsible for managing Chateau Petrus and La Fleur-Petrus in Pomerol, arrived in Yountville in the early 1980s. He formed a partnership with Rohin Lail and Marcia Smith, inheritors of Napanook vineyard from their father John Daniel of Inglenook in Rutherford. In 1995 Moueix became sole owner of Napanook and chose the name Dominus, which today produces some of Napa’s highest scoring, age-worthy Bordeaux Blends.

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.
