The 2019 growing season started with a cold and dry November to January, then a cold and wet-snowy FebruaryMarch. April started cold and turned warmer the last week of the month, reaching the low 70’s kicking off bud break about 10 days late. By early May the heat was turned on reaching the upper 80’s by the 13th. Bloom started on time mid-June with temperatures reaching the mid 90’s at the end of the month. July started cool 70’s to low 80’s until reaching 91 on the 21st. The summer was cool and dry, with only 9 days in the low to mid 90’s for the entire growing season. Summer came to an abrupt end the last days of August, followed by a very cool and wet September in the low 60’s. Summer fires in Southern Oregon/ Northern California brought negligible smoke to the Northern Willamette Valley. The grape yields were average to above average with no significant disease in most vineyards.
Torii Mor’s harvest started on September 23rd and finished on October 9th.


Harvested between September 27 and October 5 at 21.8 to 23.4 Brix, the 2019 Deux Verres Pinot noir was hand sorted, fermented with RB2, F15 and Brio yeasts, in small fermenters with 2.41% whole clusters (Alloro) for 12days (whole clusters) to 21 days without cold soak, 3 punch downs a day, pressed very gently, and racked to a variety of French oak barrels: 17.65% new and 35.29% one year old and the rest neutral. The barrels were racked in May then again in August when the blend was put together before returning to neutral barrels for a total of 15 months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Tasting Notes

Torii Mor’s 2019 Deux Verres has a rich-sweet, elegant and complex forward aroma, with concentrated dark cherries and dark berries, with floral notes of roses. The flavors are sweet, intense and rich, with juicy acidity, concentrated fruit layers of dark cherries, dark berries, and light oak spices. The mouthfeel is rich, intense and elegant, layered with sweet, rich tannins and spicy complexity. The finish is long with concentrated red berries, complex and savory. This elegant and graceful wine will benefit from cellaring and can be enjoyed today without decanting.
