Disappointing given the SW rating and price (paid $20). Nose was somewhat promising, some raspberry fruit, but color was a bit off/dull/dark for a PN. Wine came off as unbalanced, a little hot, some slightly medicinal sour cherry fruit. Not the vivacious pinot noir I was hoping for.

This is a great example of Oregon Pinot Noir done right. The wine is certified biodynamic and the vineyards work in harmony with the climate and terroir of the McMinnville AVA.

While the Momtazis intended their young vines "Three Degrees" cuvee to be a bargain, it is their 10,000 case bottling 2009 Pinot Noir Jamsheed - sourced from all portions and vine selections of their vineyard - that proves to be the more amazing value. Fresh boysenberry and purple plum are garlanded with bitter-sweet flowers; tinged with brown spices; underlain with clean red meatiness; and suffused with saliva-liberating salinity in a Pinot of refined tannins and outstanding persistence. Savor this over the next 3-4 years. Offers density, richness and depth without much weight, weaving earthy, spicy notes through the dark blueberry and plum flavors, lingering softly. Drink now through 2017. 9,000 cases made. -HS

A jazzy style, bright and lively, with red cherry, blackberry and a hint of mint in the flavor mix, all of it lingering on the open-textured finish. Drink now through 2016. 4,000 cases made. -HS The 2008 Pinot Noir Jamsheed was naturally fermented and spent 11 months in 10% new oak. Dark ruby red in color, it sports a pleasing perfume of earth/underbrush, rose petal, spice box, black cherry, and plum. Supple, friendly, and easygoing on the palate, it has excellent depth of flavor, 1-2 years of aging potential, and a lengthy finish with no hard edges. Enjoy it over the next 6-8 years.

Bright red. Redcurrant and cherry aromas are complicated by smoke and herb nuances, with a hint of dark chocolate in the background. Fleshy and expansive on entry, then firmer in the middle, offering concentrated cherry and red plum flavors and a late jolt of tangy acidity. Finishes with good lift and focus, repeating the cherry note and showing a refreshingly bitter edge. Pretty grown-up in style, and possessing the depth to age. This wine, from the estate Momtazi vineyard, came from biodynamically farmed grapes and the winemaking is also certified biodynamic by Demeter.

Color and complexity have never been a problem at Momtazi Vineyard and the 2006 vintage was no exceptionThe medium aubergine color of the 2006 Jamsheed Pinot noir makes a statement before one even picks up theglass. On first approach, it yields dark aromas of plums, black currents, Rainer cherries and spicy currants.Balanced acidity coupled with fine-grained, soft tannins keep the fruit lingering in ones mouth couples with along soothing finish. This is a wine that’s ready now and will only continue to improve.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine: "Extra ripeness in the vineyard translates to a more generous core of red-black fruits. Blackberry and fresh cracked pepper entwine perfectly with matured and lengthy tannins on the finish. Drinking beautifully now, pair it with darker fowl, grilled meats and salmon." -Winery Producer: "The Momtazi family has 252 acres of their Estate under vine. All of the vineyards are farmed biodynamically and grafted from the original rootstock of the vines planted in the late 90s by Moe Momtazi." "What makes Maysara unique is that there is over 600 feet elevation gain in the vineyards. From the property's lowest point at 120 feet to around 600 feet, the soil is clay and loam based (similar to most of the valley). From 600-780 feet, there is Jory soil (a red earth loaded with iron and mineral deposits). Quite a bit of the McMinnville AVA has this top soil. What makes this part of Maysara's vineyard special is that there's 10 feet of this earth before the base of loam and calcareous sub-soil. Only the fortunate have access to this part of the Estate: the wines of Maysara (of course), and St. Innocent sources a wonderful patch of land that sits at the crest of the Estate's highest point. " "With five vintages under her belt, Tahmiene Momtazi has come into her own at Maysara. She is the eldest daughter of Moe and Flora Momtazi, and along with her sister Naseem, is the heir apparent to take over the Estate. Her wines have an immediate elegance on the front palate, but a lasting muscular character on the finish, like all good Pinots. Jamsheed is the true essence of the vineyard blocks (with each block being blended into the wine) and a harbinger to what the vintage has to offer. In 2008 and 2009, these are all good things in store for these wines." - Distributor
