Nice cherry fruit, with some of that Oregon earthiness I enjoy. Somewhat bitter however. Needs more time to integrate I think. Read more

Editorial Reviews for Torii Mor Pinot Noir Dundee Hills la Colina
Slightly candied on the nose with nice blackberry fruit accented by violette pastille, charred wood tones, and freshly turned soil notes. Silky and soft in the mouth with nice balanced structural elements concealed by ripe red fruits that have a slight coulis quality to them. the mid-palate is nicely layered with notes of woodspice, mocha and nutmeg adding some detail. The finish is a bit heavy and shows more pumpkin pie spice. this has a lot of dense fruit to it that emerges as it sits in the glass, along with a noticeably spicy character that may be more appealing to many others than it is to me. 88pts

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.
slightly better than 2004. Excellent wine for the price.
Harvested October 15th, fermented with 15% whole clusters and indigenous yeast, the wine was aged for 15 months in 28.57% new French oak, 14.29% one year, 28.57% 2 year old and 28.57% neutral. . The barrels were racked in April then again in August when the blend was put together before returning to barrels for another 5 months before bottling.
The 2008 “La Colina” aroma displays earthy notes, dark chocolate, dark berries a mix of cherries and blueberries and light Dundee dust characters. After more aeration, the wine begins to display red cherries with floral herb spices like oregano-thyme. The flavors are sweet and display red cherries, followed by darker cherries, dark chocolate, a sweet floral mix, and a typical earthy character, followed by sweet oak spices. The texture is rich and round and fills the mouth with sweetness. The finish is very long, fruity-earthy, sweet, rich, elegant and displays spiciness.
