2011 Wrath Ex Anima Pinot Noir, Monterey

SOLD OUT AT THE WINERY

The 2011 Ex Anima is pinot for the purist and emphasizes the pure fruit character of the grapes.

Ex Anima, or "from the soul" in Latin, is a series of wines by Wrath that features minimal winemaking intervention and new new oak.  Comprised of 777, Swan, and Pommard 4 clones and fermented using 50 percent whole cluster fermentation, , the 2011 Ex Anima Pinot Noir is aged in a combination of neutral oak barrels and stainless steel.  The resulting wine exhibits black cherry aromas with a touch of forest floor.  On the palate, a vibrant texture merges with broad, dark berry and hints of earth and spice in a round but lively finish.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Our Estate San Saba Vineyard is set in a sheltered nook just below the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA. The estate consists of 72 acres of which 67.75 are planted to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah and Muscat. This is a cool site with little rainfall and one of the longest growing seasons in the world. Our soils, Arroyo Gravelly Loam and Hanford Gravely Sandy Loam, provide a low-vigor, well-draining, disease- and pest-free medium for our vines. They also impart a subtle mineral quality to our wines.
