Maysara Wine Tasting – Pinot Gris and 3 Degrees Pinot Noir
Saturday, October 13, 2018 from 4 – 7 PM

The Cheers staff had the pleasure of meeting one of the daughters of the Momtazi family. The Maysara Winery & Momtazi Vineyards, is located in McMinnville, Oregon. This family owned winery started in 1997 and the daughters have grown up learning and living the winery business. They are passionate about their wines and there are several different price points so they are able to share their love of wine.

Join us Saturday, because we are tasting two of their delicious wines – Arsheen Pinot Gris and 3 Degrees Pinot Noir

Maysara Arsheen Pinot Gris

Arsheen is named after the Persian Princess of the sky. Described as beautiful, soft hearted and kind. Arsheen Pinot Gris follows that with a bright expression of fruit right up front, greeting your palate with notes of cut grass on a warm day. This wine is anchored by crisp acidity, without overpowering a fleeting tease of sweetness that leaves you smiling. Arsheen has a smart, refreshing character that will bestow clarity to a range of preparations of fish, fowl, and pork.

90 Points James Suckling: “Ripe yellow apples and apricots as well as some dust and chalk. Medium-bodied with fresh acidity, some texture and a fruity finish. Drink now. Screw cap.”

Maysara 3 Degrees Pinot Noir

3 Degrees is a Pinot Noir made by the Momtazi sisters when they set out to make a Pinot that tastes great, comes from high quality grapes, all while being affordable for everyone.

Intriguing notes of fresh earth, oak leaves and pepper are woven together in the initial impression. Lifted, verdant tannins give this wine a firm structure for the vintage to showcase its characteristic spiciness. A vibrant and snappy Pinot that will shine and refresh when paired with curries, spetzatinas, and rich stews. Our friends at Maysara describe this as the perfect wine for a night out with friends. It’s a great sharing Pinot Noir.

More about the Maysara Winery and their philosophy

Our unique niche in the foothills of Oregon’s Coast Range separates us from valley weather influences providing warmer days and cooler nights with less precipitation during the harvest season. The property has highly diversified soil types consisting primarily of Nekia and Yamhill series, laced with veins of Peavine and Jory. By training our vines to produce between 1.75-2.25 tons per acre, we believe we are getting the best fruit possible from our unique terroir.

We believe that healthy soil and healthy vines will produce superior grapes without the need for extra minerals, chemicals or man-made poisons. Our quality shows in the loyalty of our grape buyers year after year and the award winning wines they produce with our estate fruit. The consistent high quality wines made from Momtazi Vineyards’ grapes lead us to believe that our dedication to both our terroir and Biodynamic farming practices are well worth the effort.
