Ghost Pines Merlot 2012

External Review:

The 2010 Merlot has the powerful structure of Napa balanced with the luscious mixed berry fruit of Sonoma, all in one bottle. This Merlot brings both of these elements together in full-force along with some marvelous aromas of dried black cherry and humid

This is a clear, ruby colored wine of medium intensity with legs. It has a clean, developing nose of medium(+) intensity with aromas of blackberry and oak. It is a dry wine with medium(+) acidity, medium tannins, medium alcohol and medium body. It has medium intense flavors of blackberry, black cherry and vanilla with a medium long finish. It is an acceptable wine that is mid-priced and is ready to drink now but will improve in the bottle.

A generous wine full of ripe berries & black cherry flavors gracefully abounding in a deep mocha, spiced playground.

Employing dual County appellation sourcing for Ghost Pines Merlot, the winemaker was able to blend a wine which accentuates the best of what Napa and Sonoma Merlot has to offer. The Napa County Merlot provides lush, jammay, ripe fruit into the blend in a free-spirited manner. The Sonoma County Merlot adds fresh red and black fruits along with a strong structural foundation in a disciplined manner. The result is a wine that exhibits the best of both appellations. This Merlot displays aromas and flavors highlighted by fresh blackberry and deep red jams along with subtle nuttiness, dried oats and sweet toast. -- Winemakers Notes
