In antiquity, the wrath of a victorious army often left cities burnt to the ground, the charred remnants of once great civilizations. Such was the case with the Greek destruction of Troy or the Roman obliteration of Carthage. Thousands of years later, these events show up as dark carbon-filled strata, or destruction levels, in the archaeological record. The subtle smoky quality that permeates the Wrath Destruction Level Rhone Blend—which utilizes 20 percent whole cluster fermentation and only 22% new French oak to preserve the inherent quality of the grape—is an ode to the smoke-filled smell of victory that greeted the victorious generals of the classical world. Our 2015 Destruction Level is undeniably greater than the sum of its parts. As with past vintages, this red Rhone blend is composed of Syrah and Grenache from the Santa Lucia Highlands and other cool sites throughout Monterey County. Inky and intense, this blend is upfront with mulled dark fruit, soy and earthy undertones.  The palate is generous and seamless with mulberry, cola and a long lively finish.
