In an effort to capture the essence of this celebrated vineyard site, 2012 Spiritus is a selection of just three 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 highlighted by black cherry, cassis, cacao nibs, cedar, and nutmeg. The palate is rich and voluptuous, exploding with sweet flavors of cherry and toast. Fine grained tannins provide plenty of structure and ensure the wines will age for at least a decade or more.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
This wine is made of a blend of select clones including Dijon 114 and 667, and Pommard from our Estate Savoy Vineyard near the town of Philo in the Anderson Valley Appellation.
Production Notes
The fruit was harvested on September 24 and October 6 at an average of 25.2° Brix. It then went through a seven day cold soak at 50°F, a nine day uninoculated primary fermentation peaking between 90 and 94°F, and a seven day extended maceration. The wine was aged fourteen months in 100% new French oak barrels. Coopers include François Frères and Quintessence.
