Maysara Jamsheed Pinot Noir
Maysara
United States - Oregon - Willamette Valley

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

Beginning with a generous core of red-black fruits, the McMinnville AVA saunters over the palate with both bravado and grace. Blackberry and fresh cracked pepper entwine perfectly with matured and lengthy tannins on the finish. The depth of this unassuming bottling is always an adventure to mine. Some older prospectors hear tell of herbal notes… silver sage? rosemary?

wine enthusiast 88 pts"This biodynamic grower and producer makes distinctive wines that require a bit of a palate adjustment for some tasters. Here, there are some funky earthy aromas suggesting compost and barnyard, with flavors following. There is little of the fresh bright fruit flavors one might associate more commonly with Oregon Pinots, but plenty of complexity, length and a light touch of new French oak."

wa88"The 2014 Pinot Noir Jamsheed has a better bouquet than the 2013 with more red and black fruit developing in the glass, hints of melted tar and undergrowth emerging with a few swirls of the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, decent weight in the mouth with a well-defined finish. This is good value Pinot Noir to enjoy over the next 3-5 years."
