As odd as they come yet satisfying. Sean Thackrey definitely spits in the eye of the wine police with this one. At once cooling and a bit hot, rich and almost sweet, yet far from over ripe. Notes of cherry cola and flowers with Pinot like structure.

Have always been a fan of Sean Thackrey and his wines. However this seems to be a mutt. An esoteric blend that basically tastes like a soft Grenache. White truffle, cherries, and potpourri. Very elegant soft mouthfeel with hardly any tannins. Light in color and flight brown.

Happy juice. Sweet and seductive. Layered (could so easily become a muddle with the number of grapes involved) Banging

a charmingly bakaned blend of Sangiovese, Viognier, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, & Mourvedre feels like eating out with a bold dish.
