2014 Pinot Noir, 'EFFORT'

Effort is the companion label to our limited-edition Center of Effort wines. Each lot of the vintage is crafted in accordance with our vigilant standards of quality, all competing for the crown. However, only a handful of elite lots are ultimately designated for Center of Effort. What remains is our best EFFORT of the vintage. Stylistically, Effort wines exhibit a more approachable, fruit-forward style, bringing diversity and dimension to our portfolio.

Aromatically pure Pinot Noir, showing a balance of ripe raspberry and earthy/spicy notes. Palate-feel belies the use of traditional whole-cluster fermentation, with a fine-grained tannin texture acting as a backdrop to ripe black fruit flavors. Complex and long - will evolve in the glass over the course of an evening.
