Christmas Mistress and Wine

Let’s be clear…in the song ‘Santa Baby’, it ain’t the wife askin’ Santa to come down the chimney and trim her Christmas tree.  Some wives don’t– and the forgone conclusion is – other women do, so this is the mistress-themed Christmas song, and Torii Mor, 2008, Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is the ‘not-the-wife’ wine.  Put the two together and you’ve got the makings for a clandestine evening. Torii Mor kicks off the covers, where there’s a lot MORE going on underneath layers of smooth spice, bright cherry and blackberry. It’s a pretty wine, simply robed in earthy ruby, cranberry and dried red fruit. Poised acid entwines its legs around rich rhythms of raspberry leading to a long, then lonnnnn-ger, finish.
