Winemaker Notes

Wrath's blend of clones 777 and Pommard 4 has always showcased the dark, earthy side of their estate pinot fruit. The nose shows off dark fruit and earthy forest floor. A rich, seamless, and dark intensity defines the palate, while the higher percentage of whole cluster fermentation (35%) leads to a long and structured finish.

COMMENTARY: The 2018 Wrath Pommard 4/777 Pinot Noir is bright and vivid. TASTING NOTES: This wine exhibits bright and lively aromas and flavors of vivid red fruits. Pair it with fresh salmon and avocado handrolls. (Tasted: June 22, 2021, San Francisco, CA)
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Baked red cherry, mace and hints of French toast spice show on the nose of this clonal combination. Toasty oak spice leads the sip, where baked red-fruit, sagebrush and a touch of eucalyptus flavors show.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Floral notes and hints of dried rose petal accent a savory core of spicy flavors in this finely textured red that is rich with acidity. The finish is filled with sandalwood accents and engaging minerality.

Wrath Wrath Winery Winery Image
Located on the River Road Wine Trail in Northern Monterey County, Wrath Wines estate produces small lots of site-driven wines from their 72 acre estate vineyard and other respected properties within the nearby Santa Lucia Highlands AVA. The estate San Saba Vineyard was first planted in 1975 and when owners, Michael Thomas and his mother Barbara Lemmon, purchased the property from Michael’s stepfather in 2007, they set out to dramatically change the estate’s wine and viticulture program to produce terroir-inspired wines

Michael worked closely with viticulturist Steve McIntyre and winemaker, Sabrine Rodems, to create a program focused on producing small lots of wine that depict the influence of land, weather and winemaking. To preserve the local ecosystem., Wrath developed a sustainable farming program that is certified by the CCVT. In addition to protecting the local environment, the winery team believes it enables them to produce wines that are more authentic and specific to the local terroir.

The name for the winery was inspired by both the ‘wrath’ of nature and the ‘wrath’ of the creative process that winemakers must have when crafting wine.

A geographic and climatic paradise for grape vines, Monterey is a part of the greater Central Coast AVA and contains within it five smaller sub-appellations, including Arroyo Seco, San Lucas, San Bernabe, Hames Valley and the famous Santa Lucia Highlands. The climate is relatively warm but tempered by cool, coastal winds, allowing the regions in Monterey County an exceptionally long growing season. Bud break often happens two weeks sooner and harvest tends to be two weeks later compared to other surrounding regions.

Monterey’s coastal side, where the cooling ocean fog allows grapes to develop a perfect sugar-acid balance, excels in the production of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Riesling. Warmer, inland subzones are home to fleshy, concentrated and full-bodied reds like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Zinfandel.

Chardonnay, covering about 40% of vineyard acreage, is the most widely planted grape in all of Monterey County.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
