2007 Sean Thackrey "Orion" St-Helena Red Blend

SKU #1049773 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The just bottled 2007 Orion is spectacular. Essentially a clone of the 2006, but seemingly more seamlessly constructed, it will be a future icon of California, and should evolve effortlessly for two decades or more. 98+ (RP)  (8/2009)

94 points Vinous

 Bright medium ruby. Very ripe aromas of blueberry, candied blackberry and coffee complicated by notes of wild herbs and fresh kale. Sweet, plush and very ripe but with the flavors of dark berries, plum, violet and bitter chocolate enlivened by an element of citrus zest. Boasts compelling sweetness and early balance, but the ripe, building tannins should enable this beauty to maintain its shape and gain in nuance for at least another decade. (ST)  (4/2015)

K&L Notes

Robert Parker calls Sean Thackrey "one of California's most iconic and mystical winemakers." The fruit for this was sourced from the Rossi vineyard near St-Helena.

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.
