2012 Center of Effort Rossa Corsa Edna Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc.. Winemaker Mike Sinor is a consultant for this label. 100% whole cluster, native yeast fermentation, clones 2A and Mariafeld 23. Aged 19 months in once-filled French oak barrels. Unfined and unfiltered. · Moderately dark reddish purple color in the glass. The nose is somewhat brooding but welcoming with deep aromas of dark fruits, sous-bois and spice. Very luscious and satiny on the palate with a mid weight core of luscious blackberry, cassis and black plum flavors. Burly, but with good harmony in a hedonistic California style. Score: 92-94.
