91 points Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Pinot Noir Momtazi Vineyard comes from biodynamically certified vines located on the steep upper reaches of the exposed vineyard. There is an herbal element on the nose, hints of menthol developing in the glass, touches of dried leaves, orange rind and a touch of peppermint. The palate is medium-bodied with strong white pepper and red peppercorns on the entry. Dusky black fruit surfaces with hints of cumin and bell pepper structured on the finish that lingers nicely in the mouth. I suspect this will meliorate with another 12-18 months in bottle. Good value for the quality inside the bottle."
