2017 GHOST BLOCK “MORGAENLEE VINEYARD” SAUVIGNON BLANC
The Ghost Block Vineyard lies adjacent to the Yountville cemetery, and legend has it that the ghost of George Yount, founder of Yountville haunts the cemetery on moon-lit nights… The historic family that owns the vineyard has been farming in Napa Valley since 1903, and has owned the Ghost Block parcel since 1930, yet producing the first vintage of Ghost Block in 2004. Their 2017 Sauvignon Blanc from the MorgaenLee Vineyard in Yountville summons detailed tropical fruits, rock minerals, shaved coconut and supple cantaloupe. The flavors are long, lingering, and unlike Yount’s ghost, they’re full of life. The only thing scarier than the haunted cemetery is running out of this chillingly delicious Sauvignon Blanc.
Ghost Block Sauvignon is aged 10 months Sur Lie, a french term meaning “on the sediment.” This style of winemaking adds palpable levels of richness and body which meld perfectly with the Island fruits, minerals and firm acidity. At our tasting, we were so captivated by the 2017 that it’s not only haunting the wine racks in our shop, but we’re pouring it by the glass in the tasting room. Come by for a taste…
