Orion is one of California's iconic wines, and the 2004 is a great example. Deep, rich black fruit, eucalyptus, very complex and compelling. Years of life ahead.

Was a present from someone close to save for "sometime special." And that special time finally came.

Fantastically complex. Many layers with each sniff/taste. Getting leather and tobacco along with some deep fruitiness.
