Wine Critic Reviews for 2016 Day Wines Pinot Noir Momtazi Vineyard

(Pinot Noir “Momtazi Vineyard”- Day Wines (Eola-Amity Hills)) The 2016 Momtazi Vineyard bottling of pinot noir from Day Wines is the ripest of these 2016s, as it comes in at fourteen percent octane. It is beautifully black fruity on the nose (as all the examples from Momtazi have been that I have been fortunate enough to taste), offering up scents of black plum, sweet dark berry, black tea, balsam bough, a beautiful base of soil tones, chicory, gentle spice tones and a bit of cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and beautifully balanced, with a fine core of fruit, great mineral drive and grip, ripe, well-integrated tannins and a long, tangy and promising finish. While this is the ripest of the 2016 pinots from Brianne Day, it is no less pure or precise and is a great bottle in the making. (Drink between 2024-2055)

This offers a very spicy and bright array of red-cherry aromas, leading to a fleshy, plush and very vibrant palate that carries smooth and expansive through the finish. Drink now.

Limpid red. A highly aromatic bouquet evokes fresh dark berries and baking spices, along with smoky mineral and musky earth overtones. Juicy and broad on the palate, offering alluringly sweet black raspberry, cherry, rose pastille and spicecake flavors that deepen steadily with air. Delivers a suave blend of power and energy and finishes with finely woven tannins and strong, floral-driven persistence.

Country US: As one of the most prolific and innovative wine regions in the world, America is a joy to explore. Most wine connoisseurs will agree that the nation's finest and most compelling wines are being produced today, which means that we have front-row seats to one of the most inspirational stories in wine history. While other regions tend to focus on specific wine styles and have somewhat strict rules as to which varietals you could grow, areas like California have few such restrictions in place. As a result, creative visionaries behind America's most reputable estates have been able to develop compelling, unique, and innovative styles, with a level of terroir expression that rivals even France's largest giants.

Region Oregon: Oregon is a majestic region, a veritable ocean of lush, intense greenery, spread across an intriguing, uneven terrain. You could pick any direction while standing on a hill, and enjoy a view that is more breathtaking than what was written in the finest works of fantasy. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that Oregon is also home to some of America's most groundbreaking viticultural accomplishments. The two best-represented grape varietals in Oregon are Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. However, it is the Pinot Noir wines that receive most of the critical attention. While they're not always as aggressively fruity as a lot of popular reds from around the world, they bring an intense and memorable flavor combination of their own. Expect a strong earthy framework, one that supports a complex mixture of cranberries, coffee, tobacco, blueberry, and spice. With every sip, your understanding of these wines grows in a deep and personal way, broadening your viticultural horizons. A good wine offers a full conversation with the person drinking it. Why not sit down with a bottle or three and hear their life stories? They'll be by your side for years to come, as loyal friends you can converse with whenever you want.
Type of Wine Oregon Red: Oregon is home to some of the most delightful reds out there. Winemakers from this region cultivate up to 39 different varietals, but there are some that prevail in the most popular wines coming from Oregon. Most winemaking houses make blends using Merlot, Malbec, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah varietals.
OWC No
Varietal Pinot Noir: Pinot Noir is possibly the most versatile red grape when it comes to the ways it's been used over the years. From red wines to sparkling wines and beyond, there aren't many places where you can avoid hearing about it, and for a good reason. It's often easy to spot a bottle of Pinot Noir simply by the pale, translucent color, which transitions into a shade reminiscent of old-timey brickwork, adding a lovely dash of country charm to an already awe-inspiring drink.
