Oregon’s Willamette Valley is one of the world’s top regions for Pinot Noir. And this silky, berry and vanilla oak red is from one of the valley’s finest family estates. It’s 100% biodynamic too. From a 5-Star vintage, luscious, complex and long.
"Ripe Volnay-style fruit, nice touch of oak, elegant and quite
fleshy. Very attractive"
Steven Spurrier Wine critic
Top region, a great vintage and an irresistible wine. It’s from Moe Momtazi, who with his wife Flora fled Iran during the revolution and settled in the US. Moe found work as a civil engineer but winemaking is in his blood – his grandfather grew grapes and his father made wine in the family’s basement. After a decade in the New World Moe finally achieved his dream of owning a winery and planting vineyards. The first vintage was 2001 and the results have been phenomenal. Today the Momtazi family estate is among the most renowned properties in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. The grapes for this stellar vintage red were hand-harvested from the 100% biodynamic Maysara Vineyard and the wine was aged in French oak. Best served in large bowled glasses.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
