Day Wines 2016 Momtazi Vineyard Pinot Noir

Momtazi Vineyard is a biodynamically certified site nestled in the foothills of the Coast Range, composed primarily of uplifted marine sedimentary loams and silts with alluvial overlays and an underlying base of basalt. One of the revered vineyards in Willamette, this is our cornerstone source for Pinot noir. We are always thrilled to work with this fruit, as it's some of the most coveted in in the Valley. Many people wish they could get their hands on it, and we're fortunate that we do. Easily our most intense and deeply fruited Pinot noir, the wine displays hallmark Momtazi notes of black cherry and black raspberry, both on the nose and on the palate. Additional notes of sandalwood spice and forest floor emerge with air, giving a glimpse at the complexity to come. It's a moody, broody teenager at present, which is no surprise given the vineyard's reputation for structure. The tannins are suave but sturdy, and the well-integrated acidity holds everything together seamlessly in an enchanting marriage of power and finesse. As flagship wines go, the 2016 Momtazi is a worthy standard-bearer.

100% Pinot noir. Spontaneously fermented by natural yeasts, the wine spent 20 months in 15% new barrels, the rest neutral. e racked it once and then bottled it unfiltered and unfined in June of 2018.
