At Wrath, they are all about place. Their winemaker, Sabrine Rodems, strives to illuminate the terroir of their vineyards in all of her wines. Part of that mission has to do with choices made during production. Sabrine’s mantra is to “let the wine tell you what to do; don’t try to tell the wine what to do.”  Another important aspect is the manner in which they take care of the land. Wrath has been working with the Central Coast Vineyard team to earn a SIP (Sustainability in Practice) Certification. Holding the certification means that the winery operates in a fashion which protects and preserves the planet as well as the surrounding community. It’s these great values, along with the top-notch wines, that makes Wrath one of our favorite wineries.

Here’s what our tasting panel thought about a few of their currant releases.



Wrath 2011 “3 Clone” Chardonnay

Grape(s): 100% Chardonnay

Region: Monterey County

Price: 30-35

Tasting Notes:

Aromatics of pear and honeydew mingle with notes of lemon custard and creamy oak on the nose. A sip delivers flavors of pear, melon, and citrusy hints that flow into nuances of vanilla and toast. A rich white that still offers a bright acidity, if you enjoy balanced Chardonnays, this is a bottle to try. 295 cases produced.

Rating: 90


Wrath 2011 “Ex Anima” Sauvignon Blanc

Grape(s): 100% Sauvignon Blanc

Tasting Notes:

A bouquet of citrus fruit, gooseberry, and green pepper greets the senses. Grapefruit, lime, and gooseberry flavors are accented by suggestions of bell pepper and minerals on the palate.  A welcoming acidity and bright flavors make this an ideal wine to enjoy with food. Fans of New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs should give this bottle a try. 880 cases were made.
