Maysara Jamsheed Pinot Noir 2009
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.
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.
