Momtazi Pinot Noir

Momtazi Pinot Noir

Aromas of ripe Marionberry and cherry pie accented with spice, chocolate, subtle ginger and nutmeg undertones. Bright acid entry, balanced by assertive fine-grained tannins and a full mid-palate. Rich flavors of Bing cherry are backed by pipe tobacco, cocoa and subtle hints of vanilla. A bold wine that can be enjoyed now while in its youth or matured through 2020 and beyond.
