Pungent cherry, black raspberry, floral and underbrush aromas are energized by vibrant mineral and exotic spice notes that build in the glass. Palate-staining, gently sweet cherry cola, dark berry and spicecake flavors show impressive depth as well as vivacity. Licorice and bitter chocolate notes emerge on an impressively long, penetrating finish shaped by dusty, steadily building tannins. 93 Points - Josh Raynolds - Vinous

WINEMAKER TASTING NOTES

A vivid ruby in the glass, the 2016 Momtazi quickly announces its wild and expressive character. Black fruit joins with tart blueberry and passionfruit on the nose, while hints rhubarb evolve the glass. On the palate, the wine is tense and energetic, displaying acidity typical of the vineyard. With time in decanter, notes of wild berry and marzipan emerge alongside prominent tannin. Drink now or age for 20+ years.
