Sean Thackrey 2015 AndromedaIn Fine Spirits
This is Pinot Noir from a vineyard above Nicasio in Marin County, the closest to Bolinas of all the vineyards Sean Thackrey harvests from, and one of the cooler and windier PN growing sites in the world. This means the fruit is never baked, fatal to the quality of Pinot in warmer locations; but the vineyard being above the fog line, there's no lack of sun, thus no problem with ripeness. There is a naturally very high proportion of skins to juice, resulting in a Pinot Noir naturally intense in color and flavor. An exceptional example of Pinot Noir!
