Ghost Block Cabernet Sauvignon Yountville Single Vineyard 2009

Member Review by Wine Fire:

A beautiful wine ready to drink. The nose opens with cinnamon and an assortment of mild herbs and spices. Fruit and spice notes emerge in varying harmonies continually over an hour. The palate launches with strong fruit in the center, pleasant acidity along the edges and a long salivating finish that fills the entire palate with an array of evolving flavors.

Bonded Winery #9 has 635 planted vineyard acres and the property is the ninth largest planted acreage in Napa County. The Company is committed to growing grapes without the use of chemicals. Certified by the California Certified Organic Farmers, Bonded Winery #9 uses organic vineyard management techniques. Selective leaf and shoot removal reduces fungus and mildew pressure. Cover crops like oats, peas, mustard and vetch, are planted between rows to naturally inhibit soil erosion, reduce dust, restore nutrients and encourage microbiological activity. Even grape skins and stems are composted after harvest and added back to the soil, replenishing nitrogen and potassium and increasing microbiological activity. The 635 vineyard acres are divided between Oakville (35%) and Yountville (65%), two distinguished appellations within Napa Valley. Within the vineyards are several distinctive blocks, each having a specific name. These vineyard names began making their debuts on prestigious wine labels in the late 1990’s. Read less

From Rob Lawson of Mirror fame, Ghost Block Single Vineyard Cabernet is a full bodied, structured effort with a wealth of dark berry fruit character, firm tannins, and a finish that sails on.

This is tough-edged, earthy and chewy, revealing a dense core of extracted dark berry, plum and roasted herb flavors. Needs time, but has much to admire. Best from 2014 through 2028. -JL Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2009 Ghost Block Cabernet Sauvignon Single Vineyard 750ml

Pricy, but flashy, a Cabernet to pour into your best crystal stemware. It's elaborate in blackberry, cassis and oak flavors, with a tug of minerals. Seems too soft to develop in the bottle, so drink now and through 2014. - S.H. Wine Enthusiast. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2008 Ghost Block Cabernet Sauvignon Single Vineyard 750ml
