The wrath of Juno sent Aeneas wandering the Mediterranean in Vergil’s Aeneid. For the ancient Romans, ira or wrath, was a tool of a god, an unstoppable anger driven by forces greater than man. One can argue that we see such fury in both the might of nature and the passion of art. Wrath appears in the edgy power of Robert Plant’s voice and the raw wail of Eric Clapton’s guitar. It is frozen into Jackson Pollock’s violent splatters of paint. Wrath is in the wall of maritime fog that rolls into the Salinas Valley and the relentless afternoon winds that scream through our grape trellises.

Winery Notes: “A lively palate, capped by wild berries and minerals, displays bright acidity, floral notes and a lengthy finish.”
94 Points Vinous: “Vivid ruby. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red and dark berries, vanilla and candied flowers, along with smoky mineral and allspice overtones. Shows very good depth and clarity on the palate, offering sappy black raspberry, cherry cola and spicecake flavors firmed by a spine of juicy acidity. Closes with repeating spiciness, interwoven tannins and impressive, red-fruit-dominated persistence.”
