RATINGS

98+ Robert M. Parker Jr.

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.

PRODUCER

Sean Thackrey

Sean Thackrey is a Bay Area fine arts dealer who in 1980 founded his own small winemaking venture in Marin County. Using grapes sourced from the area, he makes very limited amounts of wines, primarily Petite Sirah, Syrah, Mourvedre, Pinot Noir and blends. He is owner and winemaker and is particularly known for his Pleiades blend of Syrah, Sangiovese, Mourvedre, Barbera, Carignan, Petite Sirah and Viognier, though the blend changes with each vintage. Sean Thackrey wines are generally available through his mailing list.

TYPE

Red Wine, Syrah (Shiraz)

This grape is grown in milder climates and produces a medium-to full-bodied wine. It is also known as Shiraz, but should not be confused with Petit Sirah, which was developed by crossing Syrah with Peloursin.
