Torii Mor Pinot Noir Reserve Deux Verres 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This is lovely on the nose with a slightly roasted sweetness to otherwise fresh and bright red fruit. Shows a touch of plum in its profile along with engaging mineral, old wood and lightly smoky roasted herb accents and just a hint of a vanilla top note. This is seamless in the mouth with juicy acidity and polished tannins forming an invisible framework for the lightly burnished cherry and strawberry fruit. Slow to emerge hints of woodsy spice, faint floral tones and a touch of meatiness all come together to build excellent depth of flavor for a wine that doesn't feel massive but is mouth-filling and supple. The fruit lifts on the finish leaving a gauze of clear raspberry fruit through which you can make out suggestions of old wood, faint herbs, soil tones and a hint of spice. This is seductive. 92pts

Sweet Jolly Rancher toned fruit greets the nose followed by a light touch of barrel tones and dusty, almost granitic soil notes. rich and soft on entry with integrated yet almost lemony acids supporting fresh, slightly spicy blackberry fruit. The texture here is quite lush with lots of dark earth tones and a hint of brownie on the finish, which tightens up considerably as the ripe tannins slowly focus the clear black fruit tones. A lovely wine that will benefit from 2-4 years in the cellar. 92pts
