2018 Terraces Pinot Noir, Estate
Eden Rift’s Terraces Pinot Noir comes from N and R blocks which are exclusively Calera clone. Both blocks are 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 brambleberry, 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.
