(2013 Vintage) Bold and intensely flavored, our Ghost Pines Cabernet Sauvignon was crafted with grapes from Sonoma and Napa. The blend of these two regions creates an expansive palate that offers dark fruit flavors, round tannins and an enduring finish. Sweet vanilla nuances and the occasional savory note make this Cabernet a truly unique wine.
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.

Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(2005 Vintage) Vinted by Louis M. Martini. This new entry from the Gallo family of wineries carries the Martini name on the bottom line and is said to be from the former Martini vineyards. It earns plaudits for its youthful energy and mid-density fruit, and if a bit firm as it ends, it is not out of keeping with the styling we see in the lower-priced wines from Bordeaux reviewed elsewhere in this Issue. Enjoyable now with steaks and chops, it has the structure to grow with several years of cellaring.
