According to ancient Persian legend, King Jamsheed was able to observe his entire realm by peering into his full wine goblet.
A fitting name, then, for a wine which blends grapes from every block of the Momtazi vineyard, offering its taster a glipse into the Maysara estate's bio-dynamic "realm."
This enchanting wine presents with a rich density on the palate, cut by savory edges of cherry and spice. Plum and ripe blueberry linger on the palate with hints of minerality. This wine shows quality well beyond its price.

"Given nearly two years’ elevage in 40% new barrels (the norm for this cuvee), Maysara’s 2009 Pinot Noir Asha displays tart-edged red currant and cherry confiture undergirded by abundant but reasonably fine-grained tannins and suffused with peat, soy and salt for an intriguing and irresistibly mouthwatering finish. There is a lot of verve here for the vintage, and the promise (I imagine) of at least 6-8 years further satisfaction."
Wine Spectator (WS): 91
"Offers density, richness and depth without much weight, weaving earthy, spicy notes through the dark blueberry and plum flavors, lingering softly."
