This is another fantastic vintage of what has become one of our best selling wines. Bursting with flavors of black cherry and blueberry, with a backbone of cedar and cigar box, and tart acidity, this full-bodied wine drinks at least two tiers above its price point. This Cabernet Sauvignon has become the "house Cab" for many of our members and for good reason. Drink with hard artisanal cheeses, filet mignon, or braised lamb. 90pts and Editor's Choice from Wine Enthusiast.
Silver Ghost founder Weston Eidson’s great-grandfather, John Montagu, was an automobile pioneer at the turn of the last century. Being a British Lord and in Parliament, he was instrumental in much of the early automotive legislation and even gave the future Edward VII his first car ride. He was friends with Charles Rolls and Henry Royce, and his secretary served as the model for the Rolls-Royce hood ornament, the Spirit of Ecstasy, which we still see on Rolls-Royce cars today. Silver Ghost derives its name from John Montagu’s favorite car, the 1909 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost.
Silver Ghost Wines is an offshoot of Montagu Wines, a family owned company founded by Weston Eidson, which came about as a result of Weston's work with Jason Moore from Modus Operandi Cellars during the 2012 Napa harvest. Along with Jason’s help and a phenomenal 2012 vintage, the excitement of winemaking helped Weston turn his love for wine into his own company. Weston’s hard work and enthusiasm for the winemaking industry has led to a collection of wonderfully balanced and innovative wines. Silver Ghost is Weston's Napa Cab brand - and it was on our short list of the absolute best values in Napa Cab. We're proud to have Weston and Silver Ghost as part of our portfolio.More from this winery

This was a very good wine, guests really enjoyed it. For my taste, I found it to be a little too fruit forward (nice red berry notes) for a Cab Sauv.
Absolutely fabulous. Great integrity to tannin structure. Integration of fruit & secondary aromas. Decanted 30 min.
