Founder and winemaker Weston Eidson has possessed an entrepreneurial spirit and an appreciation for fine wine’s ability to enhance any celebration or family get-together. While attending graduate school in the UK, he traveled the globe visiting wine regions from Chile and South Africa to Bordeaux, Alsace and the Veneto. Weston’s journey eventually took him to the Napa Valley where he met Jason Moore of Modus Operandi. Under Moore’s guidance, Weston worked the 2012 harvest and quickly garnered invaluable winemaking skills. Weston has since learned from mentor Russell Bevan and developed a conviction for making wine that is richly layered, complex and balanced. With the proper experience and a dedication to making wine with minimal intervention, Weston’s vision of Silver Ghost came to fruition.
Silver Ghost is a rich, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon crafted from some of the finest vineyards in the Napa Valley. Deep in color, the wine offers complex aromas of blueberry, black cherry and cassis. Silver Ghost has depth and a luxurious texture with layers of red and black fruit. Notes of espresso, mocha and toast continue through the long finish.
VIN92 The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is very nicely done. Medium in body and silky with fine balance, the 2017 offers plenty of near- and medium-term appeal. Sweet red cherry, raspberry, cedar, spice and floral notes all open up in the glass. This is a fairly delicate style for the year but it all works well.
