The grapes that comprise Torii Mor’s 2006 Oregon Pinot Noir come from Alloro, Anden, Apolloni, Battle Creek, Bella Vida, Chehalem Mountain, Hawks View, Hidden Rock, Hoodview, Hyland, La Colina, Olalla, Premiere Pacific Vineyards (Gran Moraine in Yamhill-Carlton AVA and Willakia in Eola-Amity Hills AVA), and VanJohn Vineyards.
The 2006 growing season started a little later than normal by a week to 10 days. Bud break happened in the latter part of April. May and June turned out to be warm, with plenty of showers; and bloom was right on time, starting mid June in the Willamette Valley with some cool weather that did not limit the fruit set. The summer was dry and warm and the vines grew with a lot more vigor than in previous years. The vineyard crew had to work harder this year to control shade in the canopy by doing more row edging and leaf pulling. We also had to do a more severe green harvest due to the large quantity and size of the clusters. The second crop was also very large and had to be removed. All of our fruit was hand picked, beautifully ripe and clean.
