Ghost Pines Winemaker's Blend Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

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!

This is an interesting blend of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from both Napa and Sonoma allowing for a melange of smells and tastes from the two northern California regions. Yeah, I know, a 2006 Cab would lead one to think "too tannic" and "needs time" but this youngster makes a good companion. Nice deep, rich color in the bowl the nose is greeted with lovely blackberry, black cherry, and notes of spicy oak. But as we know the nose can deceive but not in this case. This wine is bursting with fruit backed up by smooth tannins and mouthwatering acidity combining to produce a medium length finish.

This is our favorite under $20 a bottle Cab--the nose is so invting and the taste follows that with a rich, full experience--it has never disappointed us.

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.

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