We love the fruit from the high altitude Boekenoogen Vineyard, and we feel privileged to make wine with it. Wrath's 2018 Pinot Noir has complex layers of violets and macerated blackberries that, with time, open up to display a broad array of spices (cloves and nutmeg).  A lively palate, capped by dark berries, black plum and minerals, displays bright acidity and a lengthy finish.

Vineyard Notes
Established in 1998, John Boekenoogen transformed his family’s fifth generation cattle ranch into a vineyard producing outstanding grapes. John’s Great Grandfather, George Boekenoogen, came across the United States in covered wagons in search of gold in the late 1850’s. When gold mining did not pan out as planned George Boekenoogen decided to come to the Salinas Valley, purchase property, and start The Boekenoogen Cattle Ranch. As we all know too well, times change and John Boekenoogen saw the property’s potential of producing high quality wine grapes, he began turning the ground over in the 1990’s just as his Great Grandfather did in the 1870’s but instead of raising hay to winter cattle, John is growing grapes which consist of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, now in an area that is known as one of the finest wine regions in California for its Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes and also becoming known for it’s cool climate Syrahs, the Santa Lucia Highlands.
