Torii Mor

The 2009 Oregon Pinot Noir has aromas of earth, fresh black cherries & berries, violets and faint notes of sassafras & mushroom. The flavors are rich and forward- a mix of fruit and earth tones, starting with juicy berries and dark cherries, followed by fresh-turned earth and a nice spice component. The mouth feel is medium-sweet and full, the texture generous and silky. Rich and sweet tannins/spices from the grape stems provide sturdy structure from beginning to end. The crisp acidity carries the rich flavors to a long, earthy aftertaste with black cherries, mint, purple flowers and black pepper spices. This wine can be enjoyed now with or without decanting, and will benefit from more bottle age. Tasted May 26, 2011.

Wine Advocate

The new collection begins with the entry-level 2009 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley blended from 17 vineyards. The aromatics exhibit spicy red fruits and floral notes informing the nose of a pleasant, tasty, but slightly superficial Pinot in need of more depth and concentration, a common problem in this vintage. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.

Score: 87. —Jay Miller, October 2011.

Wine Spectator

Light and easygoing, with pretty raspberry and tea flavors on a lean frame. A leafy note marks the finish. Drink now through 2014.

Score: 85. —Harvey Steiman, 2011.
