Ghost Pines Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

" Our Ghost Pines 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon has ripe fruit flavors from its Napa Valley Cabernet grapes that give the wine a free-spirited, yet elegant character. Cabernet grapes from Sonoma County add juicy red and black fruit flavors along with a disciplined structural foundation. The blend of these two regions creates aromas of dark fruit jam, sweet nuts and black pepper that meld with dark berry fruit flavors. The palate is dense and chewy without being overly astringent. Named after the Ghost Pines Vineyard purchased in 1964 by Napa’s historic Louis M. Martini Winery, Ghost Pines produces unique and contemporary wines from some of California’s premier appellations. Winemaker Michael Eddy enjoys the freedom to choose the best grapes he can find, regardless of AVA. Inspired by the free-form character of its namesake tree, Ghost Pines embodies the progressive spirit of California winemaking, excellence has no boundaries." -Winery

Sweet, candied and slightly leathery on the nose this builds in the glass revealing nuanced balsamic, meaty, and dried herbal aromas over a base of dark and slightly peppery fruit. A touch sweet on entry, there are soft tannins supporting this rather broad wine in the mouth. Acids are well integrated and add a touch of brightness to the dark and slightly chewy fruit. like the nose the palate shows off flashes of fresh and dried herbs framing a core of dark, spicy fruit that gains a hint of tobacco and a medicinal edge on the long, smooth finish. This lacks some detail but makes up for it with it softly polished mouthfeel. 87pts

Displays aromas and flavors of plums and blackberries, with layered notes of mocha, toasted pound cake and roasted nuts.
