2006 Torii Mor Deux Verres Reserve Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

14.3% alc., 1,000 cases, $40. Select barrels from nine vineyards, mostly in the Dundee Hills (60%), with the rest from the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. ”Deux Verres” means two glasses in French. The artist on the label is Janice Griffin from Portland, Oregon. · A touch of VA blows off revealing lovely scents of ripe cherries, baking spice, cedar and sage. Lovely and elegant in style featuring black cherry and blackberry compote and a deft touch of oak. The well-endowed tannins are smooth and the wine leaves a juicy impression on the finish.
