Winemaker's Notes:

Sourcing from both the Sonoma and Napa appellations allows our winemaker to blend a wine which accentuates the best of what each region has to offer. Our 2009 Merlot has the power and structure of Napa and balances with the luscious mixed berry fruit of Sonoma all in one bottle. This Merlot brings both of these elements together in full-force along with some marvelous aromas of roasted coffee and chocolate with toastiness from our judicious use of French Oak. The result is a wine that has mass and density in the mouth but is polished and plush around the edges and continues to live up to our philosophy; excellence has no boundaries.

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.
