We’re excited to announce that Portlandia Pinot Noir 2018 has been named a Top Ten Oregon Pinot Noir for Value by Wine Enthusiast! Featured in Paul Gregutt’s article, “America’s Burgundy? Oregon’s Value Pinot Noir Shows the Way”, we’re honored to have Portlandia included among excellent company of Oregon Pinot Noir producers.
Check out the full article here, which features views from Portlandia founder, Damian Davis, on the similarities between the Willamette Valley and Burgundy, and the current landscape of the Oregon wine industry.
Paul Gregutt reviews Oregon wines for Wine Enthusiast magazine and has been very consistent in his reviews of our Pinot Gris—awarding it three consecutive 90+ point scores. The full review will be released in the January edition of Wine Enthusiast magazine.
We’re excited to be releasing our 2016 vintage of Momtazi Pinot Noir with another great score from the Wine Enthusiast. Just 300 cases were made, so get your hands on some while you can!
“Potent flavors of marionberry pie topped with cherry-vanilla ice cream somehow work well here. They are firmly backed with proportionate acids and tannins, and the vineyard’s biodynamic grapes bring extra texture, along with hints of clean earth, tobacco and nutmeg.” – Paul Gregutt
We sourced 100% of this Pinot Noir fruit from the Momtazi family’s organic and biodynamic vineyard south of McMinnville, OR.
Here’s what Tim Fish (Senior Editor for the Napa office of the Wine Spectator) thought of our 2018 Rosé… “Succulent and festive, with watermelon and orange zest flavors. Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer and Riesling.” — TF
Come join us on February 10, 2018 at Taylor’s Shellfish Farm in Bow, WA on Samish Bay.
We’ll be pairing several wine offerings from Portlandia Pinot with simple offerings from the Puget Sound – oysters, pink sea scallops, geoduck and Dungeness crab. You might not think so, but February is the beginning of Rosé season. We will have plenty! Come for the wines, stay for the sunset and shellfish. Tickets are $75 per person (includes food, wine, and service.) Get tickets here: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3210685
If you’ve ever had a Momtazi wine, you know that there is a strong earthy aspect to the flavors that sets the vineyard apart from most others. In the scents and tastes here you’ll find composted earth, chalk, dried leaves and black tea ahead of black cherry fruit, but those funk-soaked flavors add up to a complex and intriguing wine. – Wine Enthusiast
