If you are a fan of Willamette Valley Pinot, and we know many of you are, then this is one you don’t want to miss. It’s from one of the top vineyards in Oregon, and at five years old, it’s just now rounding into form. Hard to beat this price for an outstanding single vineyard Pinot.
“Lots of black-fruit aromas, together with walnuts, dried meat and dried earth follow through to a full body with soft, juicy tannins and succulent fruit and chocolate. Flavorful finish. Give this time to open.”
The 2017 Momtazi has aromas of deep dark berry and roasted spice with hints of smoky clove, sweet tobacco and peat moss. Roasted eastern spices, dried blueberry and blackberry fruit flavors stream across your mouth and carry into an extended finish of complex blue fruit and sweet spice. It is remarkable that this level of concentration is seamlessly integrated.
Pair with braised meats, roasts, mushroom or dishes with eastern spices.
