GHOST PINES MERLOT (51% NAPA COUNTY 49% SONOMA COUNTY.

Celebrator, Devastator

In 1964 Louis P. Martini, son of Napa pioneer Louis M. Martini, purchased 178 acres of land in the eastern hills of the Napa Valley. The Martini family developed this land into a vineyard which they named Ghost Pines as a tribute to the native grey pines which at dusk, appear to hover, solitary and ghost like throughout the coastal valleys.

Ghost Pines Merlot draws from multiple wine growing counties to create a wine as unique as the Ghost Pine itself. Flavors of black cherry and ripe berries complement mocha and brown spice notes finishing with generous, supple texture.

WINE DRINKER VIEWS: Ghost Pines Winemaker’s Blend Merlot has jammy black cherry and blackberry with toast, cream, mocha, and even a touch of smoky dried rosemary. It holds together beautifully, and finishes nicely with that chocolate ice cream, mixed with succulent berry bits, as an aftertaste.
