Nice, minerality, jammy wine with an oak finish — 15 days ago
+3 hour decant. An intimidating inky dark purple color. Served just above cellar temp. On the nose: perfumed with blueberry/cherry, meaty with a little funk, soil, pencil lead, leather all burst from the glass. Taste: Buckle Up......Big, pure, rich, creamy wine with black cherry, milk chocolate, tar, crushed rock, cinnamon and a grapefruit leather dry long finish. Tannins not fully resolved....had to pop one bottle young and will wait a few years for the next bottle....still, really enjoying the ride tonight! — 5 hours ago

2002 from the basement. Decided to finally crack into the basement wine because it’s Thanksgiving, and Papa is pretty convincing. Papa rated it in his 90th percentile. — 2 days ago
First time having Silver Ghost.
This had nice texture, thickness, was round & lush. Blackberries, black plum, black raspberries, plum, touch of very dark cherries/raspberries & shades of blue fruit round out the fruits. Expresso roast, sweet tarriness, black licorice, mid intensity back spices, tobacco, soft leather, mild volcanics & limestone, barrel shavings, dry crushed rocks, stones, rich dark earth with an array of fresh & slightly withering; dark, red, purple & blue florals. Nice round acidity. The finish is rich, lush, elegant, round, respectfully balanced and good but, uneventful finish/experience. Falls into the serviceable Napa Cabernets category. — 24 days ago
