Ghost Pines Zinfandel
Sourcing from both the Sonoma and San Joaquin appellations allows our winemaker to blend a wine which accentuates the best of what each region has to offer. Sonoma County Zinfandel offers lush fruit, with savory dark spices and concentrated intensity. The San Joaquin County Zinfandel adds jammy red raspberry and strawberry flavors along with a strong, rich structure. The result is our 2008 Ghost Pines Zinfandel, opening with bright flavors of strawberry jam and ripe plum, and aromas of vanilla bean and mocha. Full and balanced, our Zinfandel boasts rich, chewy tannins that lead to a long and supple finish. Like the unharnessed, free-form, ghost-like tree with which it shares a name, Ghost Pines represents the long, rich, winemaking heritage of California's finest appellations. By departing from traditional single appellation grape sourcing, the Ghost Pines winemaker is able to craft consistently superior Winemaker's Blend wines which showcase the concentrated yet elegant flavor characters that come from the best growing regions in the state.
