Louis M. Martini Winery:
We believe that Cabernet Sauvignon is the most noble of grapes. We believe that great winemaking begins with great vineyards, and we want the land to speak through our wines. Our wines express the best characteristics of Cabernet, the personality of the special places where our grapes are grown, and the vision and skill of the winemaker in blending balanced, engaging, and memorable wines.

Undecanted from a preservation machine. Sweat creamy nose of spice (vanilla) and hint of smoke. Attacks with firm acid around the front of the tongue. In the mouth sour ripe earthy dark fruit (cassis, blackberry, and/or dark cherry) with hint of resin and leather and vineyard. Finishes of bitter leather (or nut) and wood (and without heat). Body medium plus, acid medium plus, tannin medium. Off dry to dry. 13.8% abv.

The wine starts by presenting a nice dark ruby color that allows a bit of light through. You can feel a touch of a burn from the 13.9% ABV but it is subtle and well integrated into the nose that carries a blend of berry and cherry along with a light touch of oak and moss. On the tongue you can taste the berry/cherry blend along with a touch of vanilla. The tannins are present but not pronounced even though it is their presence that remains on the tongue after the fruit is gone. This wine definitely benefits from a decanting and will take to aging well. It will pair well with just about everything you would think about pairing a cabernet sauvignon with, from a pork roast to a rib eye to spicy puttanesca. It’s also a bargain coming in at under $20.

I'm not usually a Cabernet person so I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this wine. Very fruit forward for a Cab, nicely balanced with good tannin and acidity. It went nicely with a steak dinner. Nothing earth shattering but a solid choice.

Not as good as the 2006 vintage.

Loved the 2006 Ghost Pines and was so excited to find a Ghost Pines in our local grocery store rather than the one across town. After my first glass all I could think of was that the wine had been watered down or something. The 2007 had none of the depth and smokiness of the wine I was used to drinking. It took me a while to figure out they were different years. My advice, skip the 2007 and find the earlier one.

Louis M. Martini winery blends Cabernet Sauvignon from both Napa and Sonoma vineyards to create Ghost Pines. Dark berry fruit blends in with toasted vanilla flavors with firm tannins.

In 1964 Louis P. Martini, son of Napa pioneer Louis M. Martini, purchased 178 acres of land in the eastern hills of the Napa Valley. The Martini family developed this land into a vineyard which they named Ghost Pines as a tribute to the native grey pines which at dusk appear to hover, solitary and ghostlike throughout the coastal valleys. Ghost Pines Cabernet Sauvignon draws from multiple wine growing counties to create a wine as unique as the Ghost Pine itself.
