WINEMAKER’S TASTING NOTES
The 2018 Ghostrider red blend includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Syrah and Zinfandel. It shows a dark ruby color with an aroma that’s rich in mixed berries and black cherry preserves. Hints of spice including black pepper and bacon carry through on the palate. This decadent red blend finishes with soft tannins, dark fruit and elaborate oak. The 2014 growing season was generous is the length and consistent temperatures. Flavors were strong at harvest and we think 2014 will prove to be a terrific vintage.
