Notes of waxy red fruits and smoldering grapevines greet the nose along with hints of rose petal and lime blossom. This is a bit angular, particularly on entry, and a bit drying in the mouth with clean, precise wild cherry fruit that exhibits excellent transparency with a nice soil tone on the backend that leads to a juicy raspberry toned finish. Still a touch tight, tense and angular in the mouth, though well balanced enough to warrant seeing how those drying tannins soften. 88pts

Garnet color. Earth, Italian spice and dried cherry on the nose. Tannic but enjoyable. Could age a while longer. Black cherry and a bit of currant with a hint of vanilla mid-palate.

Winemaker's Notes:

At Torii Mor it is believed that the best possible wine is crafted by fermenting grapes with indigenous yeasts and malolactic bacteria, keeping each block in designated lots until the final blending stage. This process enables us to not only know each vineyard individually, but also to express each vineyard’s characteristics, allowing us to optimize the final blend and produce a truly outstanding Pinot Noir. Harvested between October 11th and October 27th, the 2008 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir fermented with 15-20% whole clusters, aged for 10 months in mostly French oak a few Hungarian oak barrels; 18.79% new, 25.29% one year old, 22.69% 2 year old, 33.23% neutral oak.

Tasting Notes:

The 2008 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir has aromas of earth, grape stems, dark berries and notes of mushrooms. The flavors show a mix of mostly dark berries and dark cherries, earthiness, and spiciness followed by Graham cracker- barrel toast. The crisp acidity carries the rich flavors to a long earthy aftertaste with cherries, dried red berries and spices. The mouthfeel is semi sweet, with noticeable tannins and spice from the grape stems. The finish is long with notes of earthy mushrooms, red and dark fruit, oak spices and graham cracker oak toast. The texture is rich and mouth filling. The stem tannins add rich structure and are present from beginning to end, without detracting from the wine flavors. This wine will become creamier with a little more cellaring.
