Ghost Pines Cabernet Sauvignon Napa/Sonoma Louis Martini 006 2008
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.
Nice berry nose, full of dark fruits and a touch of spice and oak on the palate. Good balance and smooth, great value! Excellent accompaniment to some Camembert crackers. ;)
maybe a good now and thener...missing a bit in complexity? plenty of fruit and oak short on finish. still, not a bad wine just missing something?
not sure of year
The stores usually sell this wine for 20 dollars and I rather liked the taste. Nice balance and not over the top with fruit. Would buy it again. Cheers
External Reviews for Ghost Pines Cabernet Sauvignon Napa/Sonoma Louis Martini 006
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.
Winemakers Notes:The young winemakers for Ghost Pines didnt start the trend of multi-AVA labeling, but they sure got it right. These hotshot winemakers believe that blending is the highest expression of the winemakers art. Going outside the lines of the single-AVA system gets the best grapes from the best places into the bottle. This Cab has power from Sonoma, elegance from Napa: aromas of dark fruit jam and sweet nuts. A great style. Try it with your next steak or with pasta in a hearty red sauce.
