Great late summer sipper
Yesterday I stopped in to Liquor Direct to see friends and check out what was new. Among other things, I picked up a bottle of Torri Mor Pinot Blanc 2005 that had been on release over $20 and is being closed out at Liquor Direct for 12.98. This is a fantastic white. It has lush floral notes with notes of fresh peach and melon. This is a wine with lots of life left in it and should easily last several more years before it begins to drop off. Torri Mor is a neat winery in the Willamette Valley region of Oregon. They specialise in Pinot Noirs, but they also make a chardonnay, pinot gris and viogner as well as the Pinot blanc I tasted. Give it a try while it lasts.
