2016 Momtazi Vineyard "Tir"


2016 Momtazi Vineyard "Tir"


2016 is the second year of my “Tir” bottling. It is made exclusively from one acre of a field blend planting surrounded by Oregon oaks and a few native madrones from above, and so far, has been very distinct from my other blocks at Momtazi Vineyard. Once again, it is 100% whole cluster. Visually, the “Tir” is beautiful, transparent, light-filled, medium deep red with youthful hues of purple, blue and magenta in its facets. The nose is full of exotic spices and red and blue fruits. It is spellbinding and beautiful (because of the place-not because of me). The mouth is very much in line with the nose and very smooth on the palate, but the structure is always there. The minerals and exotic spices and fruits spiral the palate and finish long, but this beloved (by me), shimmering wine is as elusive as the wind or the night.
