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.

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
