If you are going to drink a Napa Cabernet, you may as well be drinking in style. Winemaker Weston Eidson–whose grandfather was instrumental in helping create the iconic 1909 Rolls Royce 'Silver Ghost'–has created one of those unique Napa Cab's that offer both pedigree and value.
The 2019 Montagu Silver Ghost Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley is your ticket to the high life. As a tribute to his grandfather, Lord John Montagu, Weston has created a Napa Cabernet that display's the class of a Rolls Royce Silver Ghost but is accessibly priced for all to enjoy. We may never own a Rolls Royce but at least we can drink as the family heirs do.
This wine isn’t all name, the grapes that go into this bottling are grown on some prime real estate. The vineyard source is positioned next to Napa greats like Schrader and Alpha Omega.
You can rest assured that you are getting varietal expression from some of the best terroirs in Napa Valley. That's why critics can’t get enough of this wine with unanimous 92 point scoring from James Suckling and Vinous Media.
The Silver Ghost is made with care that is only seen at the very high end of the spectrum. Weston utilizes new French oak barrels for extended aging and ferments 25% of the grapes in the barrel to soften the tannin. This production technique is also used at estates like Colgin and Harlan.
This wine gives you Rolls Royce quality at Honda prices. Grab as much of this as you can because it is delicious right now and will only get better over the next decade.
