2009 Ghost Hill Cellars Pinot Noir

Light and fresh on the nose with fresh wood base notes and gently sweet aromas of blackberry, huckleberry and candied wild cherry. With air, more perfumey oak emerges but it's still quite subtle. This enters the mouth with acidity to the fore that is decisive, bright and cutting, followed by a lovely and intense mouthful of dried herbs, orange rind, sour cherry and cranberry fruit. The tannins have a bit of a raw feel to them and need some food or a year or two in the cellar to help them resolve a bit, but this is so fresh and unfettered in the mouth that its already a pleasure to drink. The finish is dry, minerally and reminiscent of old wood spread with wild raspberry jam that pops on the finale. 93pts
