Ghost Pines knows no boundaries. Inspired by the free-form nature of the indigenous gray pines that loom mysteriously throughout Northern California, Ghost Pines embodies the progressive spirit of California winemaking. Rather than dwelling on traditional boundaries like AVAs or vineyards, grapes are chosen solely for their quality and flavor from California's best regions. This selective practice results in a collection of wines that offer a distinct balance of texture, acidity and flavor that could never be mistaken for ordinary.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Proprietary Red Blend is a kitchen sink assemblage of 29% Zinfandel, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Syrah, 15% Merlot, 11% Petite Sirah, and very small quantities of Primitivo, Tannat and Petit Verdot. It is aged with French oak staves in stainless steel tanks or barrels. This upscale, heady, rich wine tips the scales at 14.6% alcohol and offers meaty, peppery black cherry and blackcurrant fruit. Even a touch of blackberry makes an entry into this broad, savory, medium to full-bodied, lush wine. Drink it over the next several years.

Wine EnthusiastGrapes for this wine were sourced from mostly Sonoma and Lake counties, with an additional 22% brought in from San Joaquin. The blend holds Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Petite Sirah and Primitivo. Here, the kitchen sink approach works well, offering classic elements of herb, leather and savory plum, with a streak of black pepper and tannins that soften in the glass.
