2009 Ghostwriter Santa Cruz County 90pts/$30=QPR 3.0

This really sounds like the Pinot I’m looking for. “Pale color, modest alcohol and plenty of acidity,” says Wine Enthusiast. That rings my bell. They add on, noting that this is “dry sleek, food friendly,” all of which continues to intrigue me. The price might be a bit much, but I have a feeling I’m going to like this even more than they did!

  • Have you tried the Zmor wines by Daniel Moore? He was the winemaker at Martinelli for a long time, and is now making wine under this lable.

  • Just finished my last 2006 vintage Kosta last night, a Sonoma. Happilly, I have an allocation from the winery this month. Dans wines are my benchmark for domestic Pinots and with few exceptions they've pretty much ruined me. I would encourage you, based on available funds, to try some of these wines and determine the style you like best. Then, if possible, give one of Kostas' a whirl; you won't be dissapointed.
