2016 Asha Pinot Noir

2016 Asha Pinot Noir

Asha is an ancient Persian word describing one who has a clean conscience for good thoughts, words, and deeds with a pure demeanor and performance. A bejeweled glassful of garnets, Asha snakes onto your palate with Amarena cherries, clove, and a tantalizing wisp of distant campfire. Elegant, slippery tannins sway to a tune played on vanilla violins.

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.
