- Imported by Jorge Ordoñez and gushed over unabashedly by Mr. Parker, the grapes for Breca's 2011 are harvested from head-pruned, dry-farmed, low-yield, 65-85 year-old vines, grown hillside at 3000 ft. above sea level and aged for nearly 2 years in French oak foudres. Tooth-stainingly purple, the 2011 has all the hallmarks of a Breca Garnacha: It's dense, supple and awesome.
