The first vintage came in 2005 when, as the story goes, Mark and Chris weren’t sure how the wine would taste, so they decided to keep their names invisible and the “ghost” was born.
No need to hide behind Casper this vintage, 2009 Ghost of 413 Red is not a phantom wine!
You’ll discover a ripe, rich wine that blends 90% Cabernet Sauvignon with 10% Secret.
Ghost of 413 is a collaboration between Chris Gorman (Gorman Winery) and Mark McNeilly
(Mark Ryan Winery). Inaugurated with the 2005 vintage, this project immediately captured critical and consumer imagination. Paul Gregutt first wrote about Ghost in 2007, explaining the name thusly: “The unusual name comes with a variety of explanations.”
‘Since this is purchased wine,’ says McNeilly, ‘we didn’t know how associated we wanted to be with it.’ So naming them ghost wines was in part an effort to be invisible.
This is also the most Cabernet-dominant of any of the Ghosts to date; a full 90% of the blend
(the remainder is Merlot and Syrah). It’s a ripe, accessible wine, with all those nice Cabernet tannins combed to a fine sheen. There is a generosity to the fruit that makes this difficult to resist, and it’s meant to be enjoyed for its youthfully fresh flavors. No need to hold this one. Aromatics of cola and red cherry are lifted by some lovely star-anise complexities. The mouthwatering palate is full of blackcurrant and soy, and with some aeration, this picks up a lovely sense of inner-mouth perfume, not something I typically expect at this price point
(usually the violet/lavender side of Cabernet is restricted to the $30-and-up bottles).
All told, this is about as friendly a ghost as you’ll find.
