2016 Triskelion Pinot Noir
Triskelion is the result of Seth Curry, a lover of classic Oregon Pinot Noir, uniting with the Momtazi family to create an authentic clean wine with a purpose. Both Seth Curry and the Momtazi family believe that by caring for our planet and our neighbors, we can create lasting change in the world. We donate a portion of the proceeds to The Social Change Fund.
*Please note that discounts will not be applicable on the 2016 Triskelion pinot noir in order to ensure the maximum amount of proceeds go to benefiting the Social Change Fund.*
Aromas include rose petals, pomegranate, black currants and hints of fresh earth. Velvety tannins open up the mid palette giving way to bright acidity, pomegranate fruit and a medium long finish of clove spice and fresh tobacco leaves.
After an unusually warm winter, a similar growing season followed that brought bud break late in the month of March versus our vineyards normal bud break period of late April. Flowering happened quickly and the consistent summer heat led to the first grapes being picked on September 8th—Maysara’s earliest harvest pick date on record. The 2016 wines captured tantalizing fruits and bold structure characteristic of a consistently warm growing season in the McMinnville AVA.
