Torii Mor Pinot Noir Dundee Hills Member's Reserve la Colina 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2006 Pinot Noir Deux Verres is a regional blend from ninevineyards. It was aged for 13 months in 29% new French oak. Darkruby-colored, it reveals aromas of damp earth, tobacco, spice box, andcherry. Supple textured with good depth and concentration, it has gobsof savory, spicy fruit and a lengthy finish. Drink it over the nextfour years. Torii Mor Winery was founded in 1993 by Dr. Donaldand Margie Olson who continue to actively operate the winery. Thewinery produces 15-18,000 cases, mostly from the Dundee Hills AVA."90 pointsJay Miller, Wine Advocate #179, Oct. 2008"Medium red. Cherry and pomegranate aromas are deepened by muskyunderbrush, anise and dark chocolate. Solid and chewy, offering firmbitter cherry and licorice flavors, with dusty tannins adding grip.Serious and rather unforthcoming today, in need of patience. Thetannins build on the finish but don't overwhelm the juicy dark fruitcharacter."Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
