Silver Ghost - Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa, USA (2021)
Aromas of black cherry, blueberry and cassis leap from the glass. On the palate, Silver Ghost reveals layers of red and black fruit intermingled with mocha, toast and savoury spice. A sumptuous texture rounds out the long finish. Remarkable quality and value for a full-on Napa Cab at this price.

Silver Ghost founder Weston Eidson’s great-grandfather, John Montagu, was a pioneer in the emerging automobile industry at the turn of the 20th century. As a British Lord and Member of Parliament, he was an instrumental figure in early automotive legislation. Montagu had a close relationship with Charles Rolls and Henry Royce and suggested that his secretary serves as the model for the Rolls-Royce hood ornament, the Spirit of Ecstasy, which we still see on Rolls-Royce cars to this day. As a tribute to his family’s illustrious past, Weston adopted the name of his great-grandfather’s favourite car - the 1909 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost.
