2016 Wrath Destruction Level, Syrah-Grenache
In antiquity, the wrath of a victorious army often left cities burnt to the ground. 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 Wrath Destruction Level Rhone Blend is an ode to the smoke-filled smell of victory that greeted the victorious generals of the ancient world. This red Rhone blend is composed of Syrah and Grenache from colder sites throughout Monterey County. Inky and intense, this blend is upfront with mulled dark fruit, soy and earthy undertones. The palate is geneous and seamless with mulberry, cola and a long lively finish.
