Wrath (Santa Lucia Highlands)

We stumbled across one of Wrath’s impressive Pinot Noirs as we overnighted in San Luis Obispo on our way from LA to San Francisco. Although based in the Santa Lucia Highlands 40 miles southeast of Monterey, they also have a very conveniently located tasting room in Carmel.
Wrath make a wide range in white and red (Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Falanghina, Syrah & Grenache), it is fair to say that their specialism is Pinot.
The clonal selections feature on some of their Pinot Noir labels. We fell in love with their elegant, stylish Swan/828. The Pommard 4/777 is a bit spicier with some more noticeable oak notes. The single vineyard selections from San Saba Vineyard and the Tondré Grapefield are richer, deeper and more lush.
