2002 Sean Thackrey "Orion - Rossi Vineyard" Napa Valley Red Blend

SKU #1273289 96-100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A riveting example of Syrah is the 2002 Orion. It boasts a black/purple color with more mint and blackberry notes intermixed with exotic floral characteristics. With great intensity, full body, multiple dimensions, and superb purity as well as length, this blockbuster is incredibly well-balanced/harmonious. (RP) Inner quote mark (8/2004)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright ruby-red. Highly nuanced nose combines black raspberry, pungent eucalyptus, pine resin, mocha, espresso and leather. Sweet, dense and fine-grained but youthfully tight and powerful today, almost aggressive. Shows a slightly liqueur-like quality that may have come from some dehydrated berries. The fruit is in the background today but this mouthfilling wine boasts broad, integrated tannins and the rising finish conveys a strong impression of energy. Needs more time in bottle to harmonize its superripe and resiny qualities. (ST) 92+ Inner quote mark (4/2015)

K&L Notes

Sourced from the Rossi Vineyard in St. Helena, Orion is a field blend of Rhône varieties planted in 1905. Much of it may be "Syrah" as we know it today, but the vineyard is somewhat of a mystery, and the wine is the stuff of legends.
