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.

Excellent Cab. Not overpowering with a long finish. Had with Filet Mignon. Great complement to the steak and did not overpower.

2018 Full bodied cab that fights above it’s weight class. Blackberry and currant flavors come on early. A lovely texture and depth continue with a long finish.

Can hardly wait to try this Cabernet again. Wow!

Medium ruby in color with a nice, fruit filled nose of blackberries, blueberries, and vanilla. Not a ton of nuance on the nose, but very pleasing. Good balance and nice fruit on a medium to full-body mouthfeel. Tannins are there, but not too overpowering. Very nice wine.
