This Momtazi's nose is very forward with blackcherries, black raspberries, pepper, corriander, and hints of cumin. It covers your palate with very round and dense berry flavors, lush sweet spices, hints of dried mushrooms and cedar. The tannins are very round and polished for such a young wine with the layered fruit and spice notes slowly fading into its long and sensual finish. Serve with braised meats, stews, sausages, mushroom dishes, or cassoulet - essentially the umami foods. It can be enjoyed in its youth after decanting for two hours or more and will develop over a decade.
