Food Pairings for Sean Thackrey Pinot Noir Marin County Andromeda Devil's Gulch Ranch
In 1979 Sean Thackrey turned his hand from selling antique books to winemaking. He is definitely not your usual winemaker. Living on the edge of the world down in Marin county he makes these handcrafted wines in his outdoor winery beneath the eucalyptus trees. Sean is the kind of wine-maker who makes the “business” of wine the pleasure that it can be. Totally dedicated to the production of his own style of wine, a little eccentric possibly (as so many of the best people are), straight-talking yet generous and very much with the courage of his own convictions. His wines are as individual and idiosyncratic as he is. Andromeda is Thackrey's Pinot Noir from the Devil’s Gulch Vineyard in Marin County. It is Deep coloured, pure, rich and polished, dark berry fruit with exotic flavours of bergamot, candied fruit, and tea. This is a real phenomenon of a Pinot Noir with, arguably, very little distinctive Pinot Noir character as such, but character of its own in spades. Try this wine by itself to experience its' truly distinctive qualities or pair with strong cheeses like Limburger, Pont de Solo, or Livarno.
