Editorial Reviews for Torii Mor Pinot Blanc Willamette Valley
The aromatics here are quite fruity but at the same time reserved and cool with a suggestion of kiwi among the green fruited nose and a floral aspect that gives this a touch of sweet tea on the nose.

Torii Mor’s 2008 Pinot blanc offers a sweet aroma of crème brulee with floral notes of vanilla, tropical fruits, and banana followed by notes of spicy cloves.

The wine texture is rich, round and shows some weight without being flabby. The finish is rich and very long with lasting crème brulee notes and spice.
