Product Description

Momtazi Vineyard is located in the McMinnville AVA, 7 miles west of McMinnville, Oregon. The Pinot noir came from four blocks planted in 1999 and 2004 on a steep hillside and farmed using the bio-dynamic method. It has a south and SW exposure at an elevation of 550-750′. The grapes were fermented in small stainless and Burgundy oak fermenters with no SO2 allowing the fermentations to proceed naturally. After gentle pressing and settling, the wine aged in French oak barrels, 28% of which were new, for 16 months before bottling by gravity without fining.” It is aromatically complex with layers of blue and black fruit, Indian spices, coffee hints, and pepper. In the mouth the blue/black fruit flavors and eastern spice notes are layered with a ‘sauvage’ sense of wildness. Texturally layered, its flavors vary in intensity and quality over your tongue and palate. Ample ripe tannins balance with its acidity.” – From the Winery
