Ghost Pines Cabernet Sauvignon California 2008
External Reviews for Ghost Pines Cabernet Sauvignon California
A high-toned cabernet, this is red-fruited and herbal with a sharp black cut of acidity. Soften it with flank steak.
Another superb value is the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon. A leafy, autumnal vegetal character provides a subtle complexity to the intense black currant fruit. This full-bodied, dense, nicely textured, silky Cabernet Sauvignon should drink well for 5-7 years. These are all super bargains!
The Ghost Pines Cabernet has been a consistent favorite for years, but the 2007 vintage has surpassed our already high expectations. Incredibly dense and rich, the deep black fruit, heady spices and toasted oak notes blend seamlessly. While the firm tannins and well-structured mouthfeel suggest that this wine is capable of aging for several years, the hedonistic lushness allows it to be enjoyed now as well.
