Sean Thackrey "La Pleïade #1" California White Blend

SKU #1137705 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Medium yellow. Slightly high-toned aromas of yellow apple, dried fruits, nuts and spices. Dry and chewy in the mouth, with a pronounced phenolic character to the flavors of pear skin, cyanic peach pit, green almond and bitter herbs. Suggests a good bit of skin contact. Not a fruity style but this distinctly idiosyncratic blend should be endlessly flexible with food. Hipster alert!  (6/2014)

K&L Notes

Yes, he finally did it. A white wine from Sean Thackrey. Made a lot like the Pleiades red, a blend of many different grape varieties. A fruit-driven style with loads of floral and tropical flavors. Ripe, but dry and with great acidity. A beautiful wine and a great first attempt at white wine. (Mike Jordan, K&L Domestic wine buyer)

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.
