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 blackberry, forest floor, 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.

Coravin tasting notes: The Lansdale has a purple, deep ruby hue, on the nose blackberry and baked fruit. On the palate you get tart cherry, blackberry, pepper. A dry, medium bodied, perfectly balanced wine. Long finish. Pair with pasta primavera, lamb, or hard cheeses.

Eden Rift

Cinega Valley, Central Valley, California

Under Vine Since 1849 - Eden Rift is the oldest continuously producing estate vineyard in California. Located just 20 miles from the Monterey Bay, the 120 acre estate rests on the San Andreas Faultline and is part of the Cienega Valley AVA. Early vintners saw potential in the limestone and dolomite-rich soil planting Pinot Noir on the estate in 1860. Post prohibition, the focus on Pinot Noir & Chardonnay was lost until 2016 when Christian Pillsbury acquired the estate. Christian assembled a team of young industry professionals starting with winemaker Cory Waller to once again make some of California’s most vivid, energetic Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The extreme terraces and diverse terroir in a single contiguous valley make California’s oldest estate vineyard its most exciting new project.

VINEYARD NOTES

Eden Rift’s Landsale Pinot Noir comes exclusively from Q-block. With a south-facing exposure, this block reaches an elevation of 1,600 ft. making it the highest elevation block on the estate. It’s planted in mostly Sheridan coarse sandy loam (82%) and dolomite subsoil on ascending terraces cut out of the mountain side making it extremely low yielding with tiny clusters of very small berries.
