WINE CLUB SELECTION

Wrath is the result of Michael Thomas' two main passions: archeology and Italian food and wine. Michael was always enamored with the cultures of the Etruscans and Romans, and received a Ph.D. in Classical Art and Archeology from the University of Texas at Austin. While on excavations in Italy and living in Rome, he enjoyed the wonderful local cuisine and took up the study of Italian wine with great zeal. He soon realized that with all his experience working in the soil of his archeological digs and his intense passion for wine, owning and farming a vineyard could be a natural new vocation. So, in 2007, he and his mother, Barbara, purchased San Saba Vineyards in Santa Lucia Highlands and set about revitalizing the vineyard, re-planting it to Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah. With a goal of creating "wines that express the pure flavors of varietal and vineyard", he crafts wines from his estate as well as some neighboring vineyards. Wrath produces over 20 different wines, including nine vineyard-designate of Pinot Noirs.

We have been big fans of just about every Wrath wine we've tasted and are thrilled to feature this charming, dark-fruited yet earthy Pinot Noir. An equal blend of the Pommard 4 and the 777 clones from the San Saba Vineyard; the grapes were carefully fermented—with 24% whole-cluster (for added structure). The resulting wine was aged in French oak (20% new).

Bright garnet robe with bright flashes. The nose shows black cherry, rose and white mushroom. The palate is silky with flavors of dark cherry, blueberry compote laced with baking spices. The finish is juicy with an elegant taper—the perfect Autumn sipper!
