Sean Thackrey Pinot Noir Marin County Andromeda Devil's Gulch 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 AdvocateA truly lovely pinot with full fruit aromas and flavors of red berries, cherries, some light spiciness. It is medium-bodied (as opposed to some CA fruit bombs). Long finish. A joy.
Cally Pinot Noir with a real point of view. Bright, ripe cherries on the nose, but instead of the usual, heavy Cally vanilla oak, this is rounded out with herbal notes of pine needle and eucalyptus, with some earth and sweet pipe tobacco. Kept coming back to it. This might age wonderfully too.
