Tasting notes

Bright garnet in the glass. Cranberry, cherry and rose hip fruit character- aromatic with freshness and delicacy. Balanced savory tones of marjoram and cardamom. This is one of the more graceful vintages of EFFORT in recent years. A fantastic table partner with many traditional pairings but versatile enough to reward exploration. 

Production notes

Our EFFORT Pinot Noir is selected from quality vineyard blocks within our Estate and aged for one year in French oak barrels before assemblage for finishing and bottling. EFFORT displays a fruit-forward and youthful character that is a straightforward and welcoming introduction to our Estate wines. 

As with all Center of Effort Pinot Noir, we focus on quality and sustainable farming techniques, vine by vine attention to detail, and hand-harvested in the cool nighttime hours. Fermentations rely primarily on native yeast and small-lot ferments that preserve the individual nuance of each portion of our vineyards. Whole-cluster components bring a savory complexity and balance to the palate. Stylistically, EFFORT exhibits an approachable, fruit-forward style.
