Ghost Hill Cellars 2011 Bayliss-Bower Vineyard Spirit of Pinot Noir Rosé, Yamhill-Carlton, $18

By on February 9, 2013

Oregon wineRebecca Pittock-Shouldis was a maintenance technician for F-15s in the Oregon Air National Guard before turning her passions to winemaking. Now, she is flying high at Ghost Hill, making delicious wines in the Chehalem Mountains. This rosé made from estate Pinot Noir grapes is a beauty, revealing aromas of raspberry, strawberry and peach, followed by food-friendly flavors of white strawberry and violets. Bright acidity and the barest hint of sweetness lift the delicious fruit. Enjoy this with salmon, barbecued ribs, pasta, a ham-and-cheese omelette or an egg salad sandwich. When you take this on a picnic, don’t worry about forgetting the corkscrew, thanks to the easy-access screwcap.
