Our Ghost Pines Red Blend showcases the complexity and balance that the right combination of the right grapes can achieve. Aromas of blueberry and blackberry pie are framed nicely by salted caramel, spice and truffle notes. Rich and full-bodied, this blend offers chewy tannins and a long, luscious finish.
Blend: 31% Zinfandel, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Petite Sirah, 7% Syrah
"A real winner is the 2012 Proprietary Red, a 29,000-case blend of 32% Zinfandel, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Petite Sirah, 7% Syrah and the rest Petit Verdot, Sangiovese and Tannat aged in tank with French oak staves. It achieved 14.6% alcohol as well as a pH of 3.7, giving it a lush, plump, corpulent mouthfeel. Loads of black cherry and black currant fruit intermixed with notions of steak tartare, lavender and Provencal herbs are found in this rich, medium to full-bodied, fleshy, seductive red."
The Wine Advocate

If you have not tried this wine yet, you are missing out. If I were rolling in money I would probably only buy wines that were a lot more expensive. But for a girl on a budget (getting married, just bought a house!) this wine is a great deal at $20 a bottle. I am hooked on it, and keep buying the package store out ...now I can order on line. good deal :-)
