Torii Mor Pinot Gris Willamette Valley 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very lean and precise on the nose with a hint of dusty soil tone accenting the berry and white cherry fruit. Rich in the mouth and slightly matte, if with solid supporting acids. The fruit is rich and a touch sticky up front. The fruit retains nice berry tones but does have some tropical notes that come to fore on the back end and through the modest finish. There is a suggestion of tannin on the slightly astringent pear skin and mineral toned finale. 86pts

I thought this was lacking a little on it's own, but once again this wine came out when paired with food. We had it with stir fried rice and the fruit really popped out. I think there was some pineapple in there.

Very bright, with snappy citrus fruit and harsh acidity. Methinks this is a very young wine.
