Wonderful cab. Nuff said. - Tasted at Napa Wine Company 4/20/10
A bold wine with cherry and chocolate notes. Long legs suggest high alcohol content. A nice choice but not a great value.
Earthy. Tannic. Structured. Drinks elegantly but should age well. An impressive cab.
Three and a half glasses
External Reviews for Ghost Block Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Estate
Better balanced is the impressive 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by plenty of cregrave;me de cassis, charcoal, roasted herb, and licorice notes. Medium to full-bodied and ripe with elegance, substance, and well-integrated tannins, it should drink well for 15ndash;20 years.
A big, rich, expressive style thatrsquo;s intense and concentrated, with ripe, firm, vibrant black cherry, blackberry, currant, anise and spicy, toasty oak, which adds a nice flavor dimension. Best from 2009 through 2014.
The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits notes of roasted herbs, black currants, loamy soil and underbrush, a generous mouthfeel and the vintagersquo;s tell-tale flamboyance and exuberance. Already drinkable, it should continue to evolve for 10ndash;12 years.
The 2006 vintage has bright and elegant aromas of cherry, blackberry, tobacco, spice and roses. On the palate the wine leads into a balanced and full attack of ripe blackberries, cherries with deep dark chocolate and coffee in the mid-palate, to a long and lingering finish of toffee, orange peel, and cherries. Well balanced with great weight and structure. Will cellar well.
