“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, which they developed into a vineyard.  The family named this vineyard Ghost Pines as a tribute to the native grey pines which at dusk appear to hover, ghostlike, throughout the coastal valleys.  Ghost Pines Cabernet Sauvignon draws from multiple winegrowing counties to create wines as unique as the Ghost Pine itself.  Ghost Pines is defined by the philosophy that quality should not be constrained by geographic or political boundaries.  Our winemakers have the freedom to source from the finest appellations to achieve Ghost Pines’ signature consistent quality and flavor profile.”  Excerpt from ghostpines.com

“In the December 2008 edition of The Wine Advocate (issue #180) the world renowned wine critic Robert Parker made  a direct reference to the Ghost Pines Winery with the following quote, “The Ghost Pines offerings merit serious attention from bargain hunting consumers.”  In a separate publication, the winemaker of Ghost Pines, Michael Eddy, further elaborates on the specific style found within the Ghost Pines Cabernet Sauvignon.  “Our Cabernet Sauvignon displays flavors of dark fruit jams, bordering on a syrupy character.  Aromas of sweet nuts, sweet aromatics and black pepper complement the dark fruit aromas and flavors of this curvaceous wine.  The palate is dense and chewy without being overly astringent.
