Silver Ghost is a tribute to the founder and winemaker Weston, great-grandfather John Montagu, a British automotive pioneer during the early twentieth century. His friends Henry ROLLS and Charles ROYCE asked John’s assistant to model for their new car company, and now their new card company, and the ICONIC hood ornament known as the SPIRIT OF ECSTASY was born.
Inspired by his favorite car, the 1909 Silver Ghost, he crafted a wine as iconic and sophisticated as its namesake
The wine is a blend 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, and 4% Petit Verdot. The grapes were sourced from sustainably farmed and practicing organic vineyards in Oakville, Yountville & Sugarloaf Mountain.
Winemaker Notes: “Silver Ghost is a full-bodied and richly expressive Cabernet crafted from some of Napa’s finest vineyards. The wine is deep in color with a vibrant nose of blueberries, violets, and creme de cassis. The palate reveals layers of lush red and blue fruits, mocha and dark spice. The luxurious texture and depth continue through the long finish.”
Vinous 93 Points: “The Silver Ghost Cabernet Sauvignon opens with soaring floral and savory overtones. Inky, deep and flavorful, this dense yet mid-weight Cabernet delivers the goods. I would prefer to drink it on the young side, while the inky, jammy fruit remains vibrant”
James Suckling 93 Points: “This red is ripe and spicy on the nose with notes of blueberries and cassis, licorice, vanilla and coffee. Full-bodied and rich with ripe, mellow fruit. The round tannins turn firm at the end. Savory aftertaste.”
