  • Torii Mor Winery Pinot Gris Willamette Valley 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Soft and creamy notes of yeast and lemon with pleasant melon and butter on the nose. Medium bodied in the mouth, this carries some not so subtle notes of biscuit and Meyer lemon with pear and green apple as well. Loads of fruit and acidity, yet still a bit green throughout. Read More

    Light and nutty aromas of toasted almond with hints of lemon on the nose. In the mouth this is rich and round, with soft buttery lemon flavors, chamomile flowers and a buoyant acidity. Carries a pleasant melon and peach flavor through to the finish which is creamy and warm with a burst of lemon zest. Read More

  • I guess I am like many people living in the U.S. since I am not entirely sure ...

While the latter can be rather bland and listless, when made in the Alsatian style, Pinot Gris can be a fascinating white wine. In Alsace, the win... Read More
