In an effort to capture the essence of this celebrated vineyard site, 2011 Spiritus is a selection of just four barrels.   Latin for “breath,” “spirit,” or “energy,” we believe this small bottling is the highest expression of this location and defines its central character. The aromatics are a striking blend of dark fruit and exotic spices – full of black cherry, cassis, anise, nutmeg, and black tea. Flavors of fennel, fig, date, and cola are framed by notes of toffee, toast, and sweet oak. The finely textured tannins and fresh acid balance will allow this wine to age gracefully for many years. This vintage was bottled under the Breggo Cellars label.
