Sean Thackrey "Pleiades XVIII" Old Vine Red Blend

SKU #1053877

Going, going, gone! Another spectacular, everything-but-the-kitchen-sink offering from Thackrey. This might be the only super allocated, cult Californian for under $25! Trouble is, it won't last long. Perhaps Robert Parker said it best: "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.-." (08/09)

I first tried this in march, when it had spent but two months in the bottle. It had a few rough edges, seemed very well balanced. Three months latter, it's already noticeably smoother. Lots of fruit and flowers. Since it's full of old vine "mystery" grapes, it's hard to be fair comparing it with other blended CA red wines, but it compares favorably to a more expensive 2006 or 2007 Newton Claret.

I love this wine and have served it to several friends who also love it. I usually like Santa Lucia Pinots.

Wow. I hope you like flowers! Overwhelmingly floral. I had to dump this one out and that is typically blasphemy in my household. This makes me hesitant to try Thackrey's supposedly excellent higher priced offerings.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world. Click for a list of bestselling items from the United States.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
