In keeping with our roots, 49 percent of the final blend was macerated, fermented and aged the Louis M. Martini Winery. A legendary Cabernet Sauvignon producer, the Louis M. Martini Winery is able to bring some real benefit to our Ghost Pines Cabernet. We keep vineyard blocks and areas separate for a fair amount of time before blending. An iterative process, we began blending by combining vineyards from similar areas in the winter after harvest and continued through spring. Finally, in summer we assembled the different area, which ultimately led to this blend of 70 percent Napa and the balance from Sonoma at 30 percent. Following final assembly, this wine was allowed to age until bottling, which created a well-integrated blend bursting with flavor. Aging occurred in two types of French oak: one imparted hints of mocha, while the other provided toasted oak notes and added density to the mouthfeel.
