Wrath Wines
Wrath produces site-driven Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Syrah, and Sauvignon Blanc from their sustainable-certified estate vineyard and properties in the Santa Lucia Highlands. Their production is small, their distribution is limited, and their wines reveal attitude, passion, and an inherent respect for what a vineyard can give.

About the 2009 Wrath Pinot Noir, San Saba Vineyard:

Wine Spectator, March 2012

Rating: 93 pts
“Combines density with structure, depth and finesse, built around tiers of wild berry, blueberry, cola and loamy earth, ending with a long, layered finish.” – James Laube

Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar, Nov/Dec 2011
Rating: 90 pts
“Medium Red. Highly perfumed aromas of red and dark berries, Asian spices and vanilla. Lush, sappy, and energetic, offering gently sweet black raspberry and cherry flavors complicated by suave rose pastille and baking spice qualities. Finishes silky and long, with lingering spiciness and good cut.” – Josh Raynolds

International Wine Review, October 2011
Rating: 90 pts
“The San Saba Pinot Noir is a beautiful intensely flavored, juicy wine with a long, long finish. A melange of dark cherry, loam and some oak suffuse the palate.” – IWR Tasting Panel
