2008 Vintage Tasting Notes

Refreshingly vibrant and fruit-forward, this Pinot packs dark cherry and cassis flavors with touches of rose petal and spice. Supported by fine-grained tannin and lively acidity, it finishes with touches of mineral and earth. Fruit from Momtazi Vineyard.

2008 Wine Spectator - 90 points - A jazzy style, bright and lively, with red cherry, blackberry and a hint of mint in the flavor mix, all of it lingering on the open-textured finish. Drink now through 2016. 4,000 cases made. - H.S.

According to ancient Persian legend, King Jamsheed was able to observe his entire realm by peering into his full wine goblet.

"This wine is a breath of fresh air among the stratospheric prices of most Oregon Pinots. Light bodied and elegant, the wine is defined by red cherries, new leather and just a hint of game..." - Randy Buckner

"a clear, garnet red in the glass, delivering dusty bright notes of strawberry fruit giving way to herbs, earth, and curry spice. This Demeter Certified Biodynamic® wine offers a clean, silky mouth feel, with vibrant cherry fruit, bright acidity and an earthy finish." - Beyond the Bottle

2006 Vintage Tasting Notes

Randy Caparoso, in the Denver Wine Examiner, says: "... McMinnville’s 2006 Maysara Jamsheed Pinot Noir (about $27) stands out as a slightly “different” style of Willamette Valley Pinot Noir: more aggressive, slightly steelier in acid, and more structured in terms of tannin and glycerol than the pretty, fruit driven Dundee Hills wines of old. Yet this is still a cold climate Oregonian, and so the Maysara shares the plump, juicy, wild berry traits of the finest Willamette Valley Pinot Noirs. The meager soils, however, also yield a more pronounced anise and clove-like spiciness in the nose; in the ’06, becoming more pepperminty and green leafy/herbal on the palate, intertwined with muscular tannins and almost sweet, marionberry jam-like flavors."
