To make our Ghost Pines Cabernet, we kept each vineyard block separate until blending, which began after the wine was fermented. We initially combined vineyard lots from similar regions throughout the winter and spring; then we blended the different regions together throughout the summer to create a blend of 65% Sonoma County and 35% Napa County fruit. This Cabernet was aged on French oak to impart hints of chocolate, coffee and toasted oak while adding density to the mouthfeel.

Wine AdvocateA sleeper selection is the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon from Sonoma, Napa and Lake Counties. A blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petite Sirah, Syrah, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, this is actually an excellent value, with a deep, dark ruby/purple color and a lively nose of vibrant blackcurrants, black cherries, loamy soil notes and a touch of spice box. It's very pure and fruit-driven, with plenty of sweet, supple tannins and a surprisingly long finish. Drink it over the next 4-5 years.
