Ghost Pines 2008 Zinfandel, $11.70-$19.00, 90 points, is the first of my "Halloween Wines"; these are wines that will go well with the Halloween Motif and will add to the paraphernalia of you party. Sin Zin-I recommend, and Lust Zin-which was to me, a TRICK and not a TREAT, (Already reviewed) could be included as well, but that maybe a stretch. At the end of my review of these wines, or close to Halloween itself, I'll link them all together.
Ghost pines Zinfandel is a product of the famous Martini Family, and is sourced from Sonoma and the San Joaquin Counties.
The color is similar to the Tannat wine (Dark and Violet), the aroma is alcohol, savory-sage, and cedar, the texture is rich and lush, and the flavor is bramble-berry with a long finish of plum-pepper. The 2008 has very firm tannins, it is a big jammy Californian Zinfandel without going over-the-top. I had read some not so good reviews, but my palate and my wallet were very happy. I paid $11.70, at Hannaford's, but some of their stores are now selling it at 25%-35% off of $19.00.
