Snooth Features My Best Friends Wine!

Snooth has a list of $40-$50 Pinot Noir and Rebecca's wine, Ghost Hill Cellars '09 , 93 points, is at the top of the list!
Also from Oregon are an '09 Torii Mor Pinot noir, a '10 Dobbes Family Pinot Noir, and a Raptor Ridge '10 from Dick Shea's vineyards.
Nice to see some Oregon wines finding their way on to this list. Check it out.
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 here but it's still quite subtle. This enters the mouth with decisive, bright and cutting acidity to the fore followed by a lovely and intense mouthful of dried herbs, orange rind, sour cherry and cranberry fruit. The tannins here 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 it is 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
