This small-lot wine is a hand selected, four-barrel blend representing the entire colonial selection of our estate Momtazi Vineyard.
As seen throughout our wines, the elegance of our Momtazi Vineyard is reflected in both the depth and richness of its color. MitraÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s mahogany red hue is a backdrop of tantalizing aroma of dark cherries and supple spices. Fleshy tannins lay a foundation for a smooth lingering finish with hints of blueberries, dark cherry, peppery spice, light cocoa, and above all, the vineyards elegance. While approachable now, this Persian deity will reward cellaring, Enjoy!
Mitra (mee-tra) was an ancient Persian deity of friendship and oaths, and was thought to be the source of cosmic light. He was also assigned the domain of human welfare.
