GHOST PINES WINEMAKER’S BLEND CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2006

I love cabs. They are one of my favs and California make some of my favs. This one is dark in color with some lovely dark fruits coming through. On the mid pallet are some flavors to match the nose. On the finish are some lovely tannins, some oak and some alcohol. I recommend breathing this one for about 1/2 hour in a decanter or a wide bowl glass. This passes quickly leaving a lovely cab. Not a fruit forward one but some lovely dryness, some in control tannins and some lovely black fruits. I would give this a 90 meaning I agree with Parker on this one! Woohoo …

Tasting Note
Another superb value is the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon. A leafy, autumnal vegetal character provides a subtle complexity to the intense black currant fruit. This full-bodied, dense, nicely textured, silky Cabernet Sauvignon should drink well for 5-7 years. These are all super bargains! Made by the Martini family in conjunction with the Gallos …The Ghost Pines offerings merit serious attention from bargain hunting consumers. Score – 90.
