2011 Ghost Hill Cellars Prospector’s Reserve Yamhill-Carlton Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., pH 3.64, 100 cases, $55. A 5 barrel selection of clones 114, 777, Pommard and Wädenswill in about equal proportions. One new barrel. · Moderately light reddish purple hue in the glass. Very deep and enticing cherry aroma with a rose petal note. Discreetly concentrated core of cherry and raspberry fruit supported by fine-grain tannins and balanced acidity. Barrel management is spot on and the finish is particularly noteworthy for its persistence. Score: 92. Reviewed June 2, 2014
