Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

2010 Ghost Pines Red Blend has a dark purple color that alludes to the intense blueberry, licorice and cracked pepper aromas that are framed by hints of toast and cocoa powder. Flavors of syrupy black cherry, blackberry and blueberry and brown spice meld with velvety tannins, creating a rich mouthfeel and a long, plush finish.

Blend: 42% Petite Sirah, 28% Zinfandel, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, 1% Syrah

Critical Acclaim

"I loved the 2010 Red Blend (40% Sonoma, 28% Napa and 32% San Joaquin fruit), an intriguing blend of 42% Petite Sirah, 29% Zinfandel, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot. The biggest wine in Ghost Pines’ portfolio at 14.6% alcohol, it is a Rhone Ranger-like cuvee revealing notes of bouquet garni, roasted meats, licorice, lavender, black currants and black cherries. Full-bodied, fleshy and filled with personality..."

Style: Big & Bold
A big but not obnoxious wine with a surprisingly subtle finish. Very close to a cabernet (and it contains a lot of cab). Competes with reds three times the price.
