SEAN H. THACKREY ORION - 2001
Medieval man Sean Thackrey's premiere Syrah from Rossi Vineyard, St. Helena, California. 14.7% alcohol.
Dark purple black void in color. Eucalyptus and mint bomb that is syrupy with gobs of red and black fruit. Smooth with explosive fruit.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
I felt like this wine really lacked depth. At times in comes off as very one-note with so much eucalyptus upfront. On day three, the wine still tasted very good and seemed to come together more. Perhaps this wine needs more time in the bottle to sort things out. Originally released at around $75 a bottle but retails for significantly more if you can find it making it a pass.
