Ghostwriter

Winemaker Kenny Likitprakong, a University of California at Davis graduate who has made wine under several labels (Hobo, Banyan Wines, Folk Machine), took over the farming of a 10-acre vineyard owned by the Woodruff Family consisting of 4.5 acres of Pinot Noir and 3.5 acres of Chardonnay. He crafts small lots of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from this vineyard and Aptos Creek Vineyard, both in the Santa Cruz Mountains appellation under the Ghostwriter label.

The wines are in limited production with some retail distribution.

2010 Ghostwriter Woodruff Family Vineyard Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

13.2% alc., $44. · Light reddish color in the glass. Aromas of strawberries, red cherries, sandalwood and wood spice, with wood predominating over time in the glass. Relatively light in weight, with appealing flavors of ripe strawberries and cherries with oak in the background. Supple tannins with a good spark of acidity make for an easy drinking, food friendly wine. Fashioned for drinking now. Good. Reviewed October 2, 2012 ARTICLE »
