Winemaker's Notes:

Sourcing from both the Napa and Sonoma appellations allows our winemaker to blend a wine which accentuates the best of what each region has to offer. Napa County Cabernet provides lush, jammy, ripe fruit flavors to the blend in a very free-spirited yet elegant manner. The Sonoma County Cabernet adds fresh red and black fruit flavors along with a strong, disciplined structural foundation. The result is our 2008 Ghost Pines Cabernet Sauvignon, which displays aromas of dark fruit jam, sweet nuts, and black pepper that combine with dark berry fruit flavors. The palate is dense and chewy without being overly astringent.

Blend: 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, 1% Petite Sirah, 1% Cabernet Franc

Origin: 68% Napa County, 32% Sonoma County

About Ghost Pines:

Like the unharnessed, free-form, ghost-like tree with which it shares a name, Ghost Pines represents the long, rich, winemaking heritage of California's finest appellations. By departing from traditional single appellation grape sourcing, the Ghost Pines winemaker is able to craft consistently superior "Winemaker's Blend" wines which showcase the concentrated yet elegant flavor characters that come from the best growing regions in the state.
