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: 14.6%

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

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

Critical Acclaim

"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."

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 :-)
