2017 Terraces Pinot Noir Magnum
The inaugural release of Eden Rift’s Terraces Pinot Noir comes exclusively from Q-block. With a south-facing exposure this mountainside block rises nearly 300 feet in elevation. It is extremely low yielding with tiny clusters of very small berries. With an increased ratio of skin-to-juice, the wine has an intense, dark hue with overt black and blue tones in the bouquet. Aromas of black cherry, blueberry, sagebrush and baking spices exude from the glass. These notes stay true on the palate as flavors of bramble berry, cherry pit and oak carry through. Replete with acidity, the tannins are firm with an expansive attack that will allow this wine to age in the cellar.
