This one reminds me of being in a field of sun-warmed Hood strawberries after a June rain. The field in its wholeness.The mouth has the classic, enduring Maresh silk with a lovely weight without the heaviness. It has more of a powdery soft minerality than the typical wet stone kind of Momtazi. There is a slight salinity. An ocean-y feeling not unlike when the heavy rainclouds roll into the vineyard from the Pacific bring the smell and taste of fresh sea air. The 2014 is as fresh-feeling as that, with lots of beautiful energy and the knowing that comes from old vines. It is long and sits with you even as it moves.
