Ghost Winery 2-Bottle Box Set

Description

Join Flora Springs on Facebook   Join Flora Springs on Twitter Share

Every year, right around Halloween, we conjure up the ghosts of spirits past with our one-of-a-kind Ghost Winery bottling. Our Ghost Winery series celebrates our century old "ghost winery" that was built in 1885 and carefully renovated by Flora and Jerry Komes in 1977.

This year, we've created the Ghost Winery 2-Bottle Box Set to offer the few bottles of last year's release - the 2011 Ghost Winery Syrah - we've been carefully storing in our cellar. Very limited availability. Have fun tasting these two very different releases side-by-side!

2011 Ghost Winery Petite Verdot
Our 2011 vintage is a Petite Verdot sourced from the Komes Ranch in Rutherford. We cultivate approximately 15 blocks of Petite Verdot on the valley floor next to Bale Slough Creek at the northern end of the Rutherford Appellation.

This limited-production bottling of Petite Verdot brings lush aromatics of ripe blueberry and plum, with delicate notes of granite dust, white pepper, and tobacco leaf. On the palate, Mediterranean spices and olive tapenade mingle with sweet mulberries—reminiscent of a homemade red velvet cake. A delightfully approachable wine.

2011 Ghost Winery Syrah

Sourced from a small vineyard at the base of Atlas Peak, this otherworldly, limited-production vintage is sure to send a thrill down your spine. Haunting aromatics of black cherry, rhubarb and black licorice are followed by a luscious flavor profile reminiscent of fresh blackberries, boysenberries and sweet vanillan extract. This is a big wine, but with soft tannins that are remarkably approachable. Only available online in this box set.

Label Design
As with other wines in our Ghost Winery series, our 2011 Petite Verdot and 2011 Syrah both feature a unique label designed exclusively for each vintage by Virginia-based artist Wes Freed, best known for his Drive By Truckers CD cover art. In keeping with the Halloween theme, each bottle is topped with a randomly selected black or orange wax-dipped capsule.

Gift Box
The gift box is handsome and of sturdy construction with a matte black finish and gold Flora Springs logo.
