Ghost Pines Winemaker's Blend Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
2009 marks the first vintage for the inclusion of Lake County sourcing in our Ghost Pines Cabernet Sauvignon blend. Lake County contributed incredible ripe fruit and a generous mouthfeel and viscosity to the overall blend. Sonoma County vineyards supplied jammy dark fruits, and Napa County vineyards were instrumental in establishing the foundation for structure and density to support Sonoma County's fruit forward characteristics. The result is our 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, which displays aromas and flavors of plums and blackberries, with layered notes of mocha, toasted pound cake and roasted nuts. This wine has superb complexity and an aging potential up to 3 years.
External Reviews for Ghost Pines Winemaker's Blend Cabernet Sauvignon
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 5ndash;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.
