Wrath Pommard 4/777 Pinot Noir 2019
|Region||California, Central Coast, Monterey|
Wrath's blend of clones 777 and Pommard 4 has always showcased the dark, earthy side of our estate pinot fruit and the 2019 vintage is no exception. The nose shows off black cherry and forest floor. Whole cluster fermentation (20%) balances acidity and adds to its layered flavors, while a rich, seamless intensity defines the palate with Bing cherry, black raspberry and an allspice element; all leading to a long, structured finish.
Rust and iron aromas kick off the nose of this bottling, followed by waves of pomegranate jam and rocky earth. The palate is sharp in raspberry, pomegranate and orange rind flavors that enliven the mouth, as hints of dried salami and earth add nuance.
Well-structured and minerally, with notes of iodine to the dried berry and cherry flavors that show saline hints. Ends with dried sage accents on the firm finish. Drink now through 2024. 710 cases made.
