Torii Mor Pinot Noir Dundee Hills la Colina 2005

Member Review by jjknight38:

Bright fruit, good acidity and mellow tannins. Cherry and cranberry bring a nice pucker to the mouth, yet a richness comes through with a finish of minerality that is not unpleasant. Clove, nutmeg and autumn spice in the nose provides ample anticipation but the structure always leaves you wanting more which is great in showbiz but not so much in a wine review. Don't expect a huge California Pinot Noir such as Bien Nacido or Russian River. Oregon tends to be more Burgundian with Pinot Noir but this stands out because of their respect for terroir and limited production.
