Momtazi single vineyard Pinot Noir returns after a three-year hiatus and we think it’s our best interpretation yet! Classic, concentrated, dark fruit aromas of blackberry and dark cherry are highlighted by ripe raspberry, red licorice, and spicy accents of tobacco, bramble, violets and vanilla. The palate has medium-full body with expansive ripe tannins complemented by juicy acid. Flavors of blackberry, tart cherry and spicy/floral non-fruit complexity set this wine apart from many Willamette Valley Pinots Noirs. No new oak was used during its 10 months of aging, revealing the intriguing and diverse personality of this Biodynamically farmed vineyard. A long finish is carried by age-worthy tannins and vibrant acidity. Momtazi Vineyard fans will be impressed by the youthful balance of this wine and can also look forward to its longevity in their cellar.
