The Syrah grapes from the Estate Vineyard at Wrath Wines is a prime example of this foundation varietal of the Rhône Valley. The vineyard is part of the esteemed Santa Lucia Highlands AVA, some 30 miles south of the City of Monterey.
Dark color and brooding aromatics are characteristic of Syrah and for the featured wine in particular. It possesses some pepper and high toned aromatics that usually accompany Syrahs that are grown in colder regions. The palate is gratified with ripe fruit and the thickness normally associated with warmer growing sites. This is the bridge wine between the two and is very big, very opulent and will age gracefully for the next few years.
