Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
As seen throughout our wines, color has never been a problem at our Momtazi vineyard. Mitra's brilliant magenta, dark cherry is a backdrop for tantalizing aromas of black plums, cherries, raspberries, along with hints of dark mocha and chocolates. Fine, but persistent tannins frame an opulent, long finish showcasing dark, smoky fruits, spices and above all, the vineyards elegance. While approachable now, this Persian deity will reward cellaring.

Other Notes
The Momtazis believe in holding vintages until the wine is fully evolved, rather than releasing chronologically. Each vintage is unique and should mature on its own timeline.
