Ghost Pines is one of Gallo's "ghost" labels, but an association with the Modesto, Calif., giant is rapidly becoming more of a positive recommendation than a warning flag. This full-bodied, stylish cabernet from Napa (61 percent) and Sonoma (39 percent) offers pure and intense black cherry and black currant with a distinct Napa style predominating. It's reasonably complex and well-structured and will benefit from age, but can be enjoyed young.
