Ghost Pines Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
2009 marks the first vintage for the inclusion of Lake County sourcing in our Ghost Pines Cabernet Sauvignon blend. Lake County contributed incredible ripe fruit and a generous mouthfeel and viscosity to the overall blend. Sonoma County vineyards supplied jammy dark fruits, and Napa County vineyards were instrumental in establishing the foundation for structure and density to support Sonoma County's fruit forward characteristics. The result is our 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, which displays aromas and flavors of plums and blackberries, with layered notes of mocha, toasted pound cake and roasted nuts. This wine has superb complexity and an aging potential up to 3 years.
This wine smells so good. Vanilla eveywhere. You almost just want to keep your nose in the glass. Sadly, the taste does not compare to the smell. Now... it's now bad... but after such great smell you expect more. It's a little watery for my taste and the finish falls off a cliff. This is a great wine for the one who does not like thick and muddy wines.
