Maysara Jamsheed Pinot Noir 2009
Wine AdvocateWhile 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.
Wine SpectatorOffers 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.
