Black tea, violet and mocha awaken the senses on the nose. Followed by blackberry and cassis, tannins are soft, with bright acidity that adds nice structure to the wine. Complex and layered, the wine continues to open up and flourish as it sits in the glass.

Pilcrow Wines have managed to captivate a wide number of wine drinkers with their 'Old Napa' approach. Elegance, tension and transparency are some of the qualities that Sara Beer manages to deliver in every wine. This Ghost Block Vineyard Cabernet focusses its efforts on highlighting this mystical site. It was formerly a hill but ended up on the valley floor in Yountville, and the terroir showcases an array of Napa Tertiary volcanics, giving birth to this gem from the acclaimed 2016 vintage. In an effort to create an honest wine, Sara keeps the winemaking minimal, with no modern techniques. The wine is quite unique: a soft layer of rose petals and dark fruit is seamlessly complemented by vibrant tension and silky tannins.
