GHOST PINES CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2006


So last year we were introduced to this fairly unassuming Cab from the folks at Gallo, called Ghost Pines. A blend of Napa and Sonoma fruit, this Cab was a huge surprise, and quickly became a staff and customer favorite. I can’t mention what price we sold it at last year because this year it will be closer to $17-$18, but naysayers will be impressed at its textbook California Cab aromas and flavors of currant, cedar, mocha and spice. This red is full-bodied with good tannic grip and a phenomenal finish.


The only thing unfortunate about this wine is that, unlike last year, when we had a significant supply, we’ve been allocated only 20 cases, so this one will actually sell out rather quickly. And with Alfonse back from vacation, he will probably sell it all out singlehandedly (this was his favorite wine for the holidays last year).

Ive tried several of the Ghost Pine offerings and never have been disappointing. Had a bottle of the 2005 Merlot that was probably the best sub 15 dollar bottle ive ever had.

Feel free to check out my blog...I have gotten away from the wine reviews a bit but still keep it active.
