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. And like its name, the wine itself is filled with layers of richness, culture and authenticity.
Silver Ghost is a full-bodied, opulent Cabernet Sauvignon crafted from some of Napa Valley’s finest vineyards. Complex aromas of black cherry, blueberry and cassis perfectly complement the wine’s rich, deep purple hue. The palate reveals lush fruit and notes of espresso, mocha, and toast providing a rich texture and depth guaranteed to please the palate long after the last sip.
