Another impressive wine from Ghost Pines at an attractive price point is the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, emanating 42% from Napa, 36% from Lake and 22% from Sonoma. The final blend was three-fourths Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Barbera. This spent 18 months in aged French and American oak and is slightly more powerful wine at 14.2%. It is a large cuvée of 79,000 cases, priced to be affordable and made in a drinkable and endearing style. The wine offers a deep ruby/plum purple color, sweet blackcurrant fruit, medium body, lush, soft tannins and enough acidity for focus. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.

Product Description:

"Ghost Pines Cabernet Sauvignon is rich and offers tremendous depth, opening with aromas of intense blackberry, blackcurrant and dark cherry. You’ll also find aromas of toasty oak, vanilla, and toasted nuts before the palate opens with flavors of Asian spice framed by seamless, mouth-coating ripe tannins. Combining desirable mid-palate viscosity and full, round mouthfeel, our Cabernet concludes with outstanding length accented by mouth-filling black fruit." -Winery
