Ghost Pines Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Member Review by raindance:

I had a glass with dinner a couple of days after it had been opened. We served this at my daughter's wedding in Feb. 2013. I had not a drop until today, August 19. It was lovely, and I am giving myself and my wife a personal high five for picking it to share with friends on one of our top ten personal memory days in our lives. Last bottle was consumed on Super Bowl Sunday, on Anne and Andy's first wedding anniversary. Good-bye old friend.

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.

Incredible blend of California counties. Deep, dark, yet still subtly nuanced. Lots of rich black fruit and Asian spice. Powerful tannins make the dominant portion of Napa Cab impossible to miss.

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 Countys 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. - Winery

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 and firm tannins.
