NICOLAS-JAY Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley 'Momtazi' 2017

The 2017 Momtazi Pinot Noir from Nicolas-Jay spends 12 months in 50% new French oak. The vines sit on volcanic and marine sedimentary soils giving the wine strong minerality and sense of place. Higher elevation, cool evenings, and strong wind all help to form a rich and silky wine. The nose bursts with macerated blackberries and ripe red cherries. Flavors of concentrated dark red fruits melt into lucious baking spices, while the lingering acid keeps the palate juicy. Violet notes dance throughout while the tannins slowly build for a long and lively finish.
