McMinnville sub AVA
Willamette Valley AVA
From the Momtazi Vineyard, this Willamette Valley Pinot noir was subtly different than most Pinots of the 2012 vintage. Although you wouldn’t know it by the the color– it was a deep, dark cherry red in the glass. But on the nose, there was a dusty, eucalyptus aroma that reminded me of a warm, summer day.
The flavors of this Pinot noir were more complex; an interesting herbaciousness akin to fresh bay leaves, tart cranberries, black pepper and many mineral notes. It had a pleasant tannic finish filling the mouth with cracked black pepper and a drying, cocoa powder sensation.
We think this wine would pair great with many different foods so go get some and try it!
