Winemaker Notes

The 2012 Center of Effort Pinot Noir shows a nose of orange peel and Montmorency cherries. The palate is mid-weight with ripe plum, cocoa dust, and a balancing freshness. Earthy notes of new leather and faint campfire lead into a long finish.

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
This is a rich, dense Pinot, with blackberries, sweet cloves, allspice, gingerbread and nutmeg aromas. The palate carries the tune, with dark raspberry, dried strawberry, cranberry sauce and black cherry notes all heavily seasoned by cardamom, pine sap, eucalyptus and sea salt.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Similarly styled, yet slightly more fresh and fruit forward, the 2012 Pinot Noir spent 19 months in 35% new French oak, with the balance in neutral barrels. It gives up impressive currants, spring flowers and underbrush in its medium-bodied, supple and layered palate. The 2011 has a more classical feel, but I love the fruit and purity here. It should be consumed over the coming 3-5 years as well.

Center of Effort Winery Image
From their estate vineyard and winery located in the cool foothills of the Edna Valley, Rob Rossi and Bill Swanson join together with winemaker Nathan Carlson and the farming wisdom of the Talley family, to craft this impressive line up of wines. Sustainably farmed, the vines enjoy thedelicate balance of a cool climate and lean soils, producing wineswith a unique sense of character and place. Originally planted in1978, the vineyard has been given new life under their ownership and we expect to add to the strength of wines from this region.

California’s coolest wine growing area, Edna Valley excels in the production of high quality Pinot noir, Chardonnay, Rhône Blends and aromatic white wines. It has a cool Mediterranean climate and an incredibly long growing season, giving late-ripening varieties plenty of opportunity to develop great phenolic complexity.

Its northwest to southeast orientation creates a direct path for cool Pacific air and fog to penetrate the valley from the Los Osos and Morro Bay area inwards. Low hillsides of both calcareous and volcanic soils are home to much of the vineyard acreage of the Edna Valley.
