Rich and Intense Flavor From Seufert Winery’s 2007 Momtazi Vineyard Pinot Noir

In continuing my tasting journey through Seufert’s wines, I uncorked a bottle of their 2007 Momtazi Vineyard Pinot Noir.  Only 80 cases were produced of this biodynamic Pinot and I was glad I got to enjoy a bottle.

Now the Fun Part- Tasting the Wine

Seufert’s Pinot pours a dark plum in the glass.  The nose is rich and earthy with a bouquet of berries and cherries.  The palate is filled with intense flavors of blackberries, plum, and cherries with interwoven notes of oak.  The wine has defined tannins and ends with a spicy finish.  A powerful Pinot from Seufert that will definitely stand up to a hearty meal.

My Wine Rating- B

Food Pairing Suggestions-  This wine pairs well with veal shanks, mushroom risotto, or a roasted duck breast.

An Earthy Pinot Noir from Seufert Winery

Wine geeks always like to argue over who has the better Pinot Noir, California or Oregon.  It seems as though people want to pit one state against the other in order to prove which region produces the best wine.  It is true that there are generally differences between the two…I think that California’s Pinots tend to be more fruity and Oregon’s tend to be earthier.  I will spare you the petty arguments as I come to the conclusion that both states produce some awesome Pinots…and today I am diving into a great bottle from Oregon’s Seufert Winery.

Now the Fun Part- Tasting the Wine

Seufert Winery’s Cuvee pours a light ruby in the glass.  The nose is intriguing and musty with notes of strawberry, plum, and cherry.  The palate is smooth and light with tastes of plum, cherry, blackberry, and lots of earthy undertones.  Plenty of balancing acidity lifts the peppery finish.  I am impressed with this rustic Pinot Noir from Seufert!

My Wine Rating- B+/A-

Food Pairing Suggestions- This wine pairs perfectly with pizza, grilled salmon, or escargots.
