Olson Estate Vineyard, formerly McDaniel Vineyard, was initially planted in 1972 by some of the original Oregon wine industry pioneers. A collaboration based around the friendship of Jim McDaniel, David Lett and Charles Coury resulted in this enchanting vineyard site.

This wine is produced from a compilation of plantings from all seven blocks of Olson Vineyard as a true "Field Blend", producing a complex wine of balance, grace and finesse. Enhanced by the traditional winemaking style of winemaker, Jon Tomaselli, the fruit from all blocks was co-fermented in a 2.5-ton oak upright utilizing 25% whole clusters and then aged for over 16 months in 30% new French oak. It is truly an homage to the legacy of those Oregon industry pioneers.

Torii Mor Winery was founded in 1993 by Donald Olson, MD, who remains the owner to this day. Since its modest beginnings with just over 1,000 cases, Torii Mor has blossomed into a super-premium winery that focuses on small lots of handcrafted vineyard-designated Pinot noir. Winemaker, Jon Tomaselli is passionately producing world-class Pinot noir in the Dundee Hills of Oregon. With a commitment to sustainability, Torii Mor has achieved LIVE Certification for both our Olson Estate Vineyard and our LEED Gold–Certified winery while continuing to craft high-quality, complex wines that possess a quiet elegance.
