Sean Thackrey Petite Sirah Mendocino County Sirius Eaglepoint Ranch 2009
"Long-time readers know I am a big fan of this underrated varietal in the Golden State, which also has a terrific track record of aging for 20-30 or more years when made in the manner such as Sean Thackrey's Sirius...One of California's most iconic and mystical winemakers, Sean Thackrey has logged in 20 or more vintages of consistently stunning wines that perhaps say it all with the simple quote on his label: -Sean A. Thackrey, Vintner, Bolinas, California." Robert Parker's Wine AdvocateNotes of dark coffee, ground black pepper, blackberries and incense. It is an exotic, full-bodied, enormously concentrated wine.
Herbal and a bit medicinal on the nose, but fruit emerges on the palate - blueberry, black cherry - dark chocolate, eucalyptus and sage. All perfectly balanced. This can be consumed now, or even in 20 years!
