Ghost Hill Cellars 2014 Bayliss-Bower Vineyard Pinot Noir, Yamhill-Carlton, $42

By on July 9, 2017

This vintage marked the final crush at Ghost Hills Cellars for Rebecca Pittock-Shouldis, and she’s left the Bayliss family in Carlton, Ore., with a delicious string of Pinot Noir. Sticking with tradition, this blend starts with Pommard (45%) and follows with Dijon 777 (20%), Dijon 114 (20%) and Wädenswil (15%). Enticing aromas of cherry jam, dark strawberry and cinnamon include beautiful forest elements joined by fresh tarragon and facial powder. It’s dark and ripe with a sense of elegance amid its long flavors of black cherry and dried strawberry as a flourish of juicy pomegranate, red currant and cinnamon make it quite the quaffer. These wines are available in Oregon, Washington, Texas, Georgia, Alabama and online.
