Add to Cart

The 2014 Torii Mor Willamette Valley Pinot Noir Black Label has rich aromas of fresh raspberries, sweet and plump dark cherries and fresh, delicate mushrooms. The flavors are fresh, rich and sweet. The entry is forward, sweet with a rich amount of sweet darker cherries, the mid palate carries on that velvet-fruity goodness to a long, enjoyable aftertaste of pure Oregon Pinot Noir. The mouthfeel is rich and voluptuous. The finish is very long, sweet, with the complexity of fruit and rich spices.
