Torii Mor Syrah Rogue Valley Late Bottled Vintage Port 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Produced using neutral spirits distilled on site from Pinot Noir. Fairly alcoholic on the nose with gamy, butterscotch and pepper tinged dark dried fruit notes accented with hints of baked clay and an oxidative sweetness. On the palate this shows fine balance with dry tannins balancing the sweet core of licorice and bitter chocolate tinged fruit. The mid-palate shows more of a fruit character, with sweeter chocolate notes emerging and leading to a long finish laced with tea, dried spice, and dried red fruits. A fun, spicy alternative to port. 90pts

Nutty oxidative character on blackberries, cassis, blueberries and earth. This is fortified with a pinot noir spirit. Very interesting. - Tasted at winery 8/17/10

Very rich and full-bodied. One of the best ports I've tasted.
