The Weekly Wine for April 11, 2016


Ghost Pines Cabernet 2012,13,and 14.  Yes I am presenting all three.  This is a supermarket wine that I really like.  It is a top end everyday wine or a lower end high priced wine with a price point of $25.00 retail, $17.50 at discount and $35.00 to $40.00 In most local restaurants.  I find it one of the better values for a restaurant wine as the mark up is generally much lower than some similar wines.   This wine is part of the Louis Martini family of wines and I would even venture to call it a  semi-craft wine.

I have no Label Photo for this weekly wine as I consumed the 2014 at a restaurant and simply forgot to pull the label of take the bottle home.  In any case I’ve been drinking this wine for at least three years and have tasting notes going back three years.  It is without question the most vintage (year to year) consistent wine I’ve seen from a production shop that I consider worth drinking.  You can find my tasting notes for the 2012 vintage in my wine reviews.  If you can find it buy it and let me know what you think.

  2. Thank you for sharing something I might find in my local supermarket or beverage store. I’ll keep an eye out for it. Tasting notes! I make notes about food, but never thought to make them about wines. So much to learn.
