2019 Momtazi Vineyard Pinot Noir
Concentrated, dark fruited aromas of blackberry, plum, and baked cherry are balanced by red raspberry, currant, and intricate notes of brown sugar, cedar, and tobacco. Upon entrance the palate has a medium-full body intertwined with bold tannins and a bright acidity. The palate opens to flavors of fig, sweet marionberry, bramble berry pie, and mushroom that are classic to the McMinnville AVA. During the winemaking process this wine was aged for 10 months in 30% new French oak which gives us flavors of vanilla and elegant baking spices. The long acid driven finish is complemented by the flavor of black cherries and a complex minerality. The 2019 Momtazi Vineyard is a beautifully balanced wine in its youth and will cellar for at least another ten years.
