Thackrey Orion Syrah St. Helena Napa Valley 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Not yet reviewed; 2008 vintage rated 95 points by Robert Parker: Marching to the beat of a drummer largely unknown to any other winemaker in California, Sean Thackerey continues to produce some extraordinary wines, in this case from a field blend planted in 1905. This is clearly a Rhone Ranger blend, with a dense ruby/purple color and loads of incense, camphor, blue and black fruits, earth, and spice. Full-bodied, rich, and bursting with personality, the wine is unique/singular, with an intensity that has to be tasted to be believed. Drink it over the next decade or more.

Thackrey & Co.:
We make wine from grapes rather than dogmas; so our only object is that our wines be delicious and complex.
