Ghost Pines Merlot 2013
Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Merlot, which is 94% Merlot and 6% Petite Sirah, comes primarily from Sonoma, with a little Napa fruit in it. It is aged in stainless steel barrels with French and American oak staves as inserts. This supple wine displays lots of straightforward berry fruit, and is medium-bodied with depth and moderate power. Drink it over the next 3-4 years.
Wine SpectatorLeanly structured, with herb, cherry and cedar flavors, showing a hint of tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2019. 31,400 cases made.
