Ghost Pines Cabernet Sauvignon 2008: Sonoma, say hello to Napa @NapaVintners, @sonomavintners

We gave my cousin a bottle of the Ghost Pines cab a while ago and have since enjoyed it on our own.  Ghost Pines is a venture by the Louis Martini winery with grapes from both Napa and Sonoma.  It’s interesting as the Napa grapes bring the big fruit and Sonoma the more dry tannic properties leading to a very balanced Cab without the pretense of a true Napa Cab.  It’s widely available in Pennsylvania (for those who live in the commonwealth) and in other states too for around $20 and it’s a great value for that.  This is a drink by itself wine and one that will work well with food due to it’s greater balance than the typical big Napa cab.
