We are honored to feature wines from Maysara Winery. If you are in the area, we welcome you to stop by and taste them. If not, we encourage you to learn more about them.
2016 Autees Pinot Blanc
A slightly richer style of the Pinot Blanc grape, tending towards ripe fruit notes of apricot and even lychee. The floral scents in the nose are honeysuckle alight on a cool breeze. The upright acidity beckon you back again, with ample minerality on the dry, clean finish. Stellar with the firmer cheeses, fresh, ripe fruit and subtly herbed seafood.
2012 Jamsheed Pinot Noir
Extra ripeness in the vineyard translates to a more generous core of red-black fruits. Blackberry and fresh cracked pepper entwine perfectly with matured and lengthy tannins on the finish. Drinking beautifully now, pair it with darker fowl, grilled meats and salmon. According to ancient Persian legend, King Jamsheed was able to observe his entire realm by peering into his full wine goblet.
Both wines are featured on our Tasting Flights this month, are available for purchase in our Tasting Room, and available via the links under each wine.
Seared Cod Cakes with Pineapple Salsa is the featured recipe for the month.
Paired with Maysara 2017 Autees Pinot Blanc.

Moe Momtazi will join us in the Brooks tasting room on November 17th, from 1-4pm.
