2011 Ghost Hill Cellars Pinot Noir Blanc Bayliss-Bower Vineyard Yamhill Carlton 13.5% $25

Sweet grilled nectarines greet the nose over a base of dusty flowers and dry earth. This shows a subtle yet distinct spiciness on the nose. Bright and medium- to light-bodied in the mouth, with fabulous acidity that supports zesty lemon and subtle apricot fruit. Very focused and precise on the palate, with late arriving suggestions of blueberry and wild cherries that linger on the long, clean and refreshing finish. 90 points

    It's REALLY disappointing to read these lists where Italian whites are constantly snubbed. Only one Italian variety and it's grown in CA. Spain, on the other hand is CONSISTENTLY represented.
