Releasing our 2016 Momtazi Pinot with 92 points from the Wine Enthusiast!

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.

2014 Momtazi Pinot Noir – 90 Points (Wine Enthusiast)

Posted by portlandia on

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
