Sourced from the famous Ghost Block Vineyard, the 2019 vintage has bold aromatics of dark cherry, ripe plum and blackcurrant that are met with delicate floral notes of lavender and violet, and finishes with spicy black pepper and clove. On the palate, blackberry, black cherry, and cassis are supported with layers of dark chocolate and cacao and rounded out with herbal notes of bay leaf and tobacco giving the wine stunning richness and depth. Medium to full-bodied with fine grained tannins and nicely balanced acidity create a beautiful long, lengthy finish that shows off the unique terroir of the iconic vineyard from where it originates.
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.
