Sean Thackrey 2012 Orion Rossi VineyardIn Fine Spirits
Ruby in color with aromas of black raspberry and eucalyptus complicated by sexy white fruit notes of apricot, passion fruit and peach pit. Suave, elegant and quite penetrating, with harmonious acidity shaping the complex flavors of black raspberry, stone fruits and chocolate mint. This "heritage vineyard," from which Sean Thackrey has made this wine since 1992, was planted in 1905, and according to him, "no one knows what's in it." He added that at least 11 different varieties have been identified.
