Ghost Pines Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

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

This wine smells so good. Vanilla eveywhere. You almost just want to keep your nose in the glass. Sadly, the taste does not compare to the smell. Now... it's now bad... but after such great smell you expect more. It's a little watery for my taste and the finish falls off a cliff. This is a great wine for the one who does not like thick and muddy wines.

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

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.

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!

A high-toned cabernet, this is red-fruited and herbal with a sharp black cut of acidity. Soften it with flank steak.
