Powerful rich reds - PLEIADES XXV111, Sean Thackrey. California

PLEIADES XXV111, Sean Thackrey. California

Bin: 581
Alcohol Percentage: 14.4%
Area: This is unusual for a wine of this quality. A blend of vineyards and blend of vintages. And unlike most serious wines made from multiple years (think non-vintage Champagne) Thackrey is not aiming for consistency - the blend and the style vary year by year.
Producer: To quote the ebullient Sean Thackrey, on the back label:
"To quote Sean’s back label: “The object of Pleiades Old Vines is to be delicious, delight the jaded, irritate the Wine Police, and go well with anything red wine goes well with. This edition is dominated by Pinot Noir along with Sangiovese, Viognier, Mourvèdre, Syrah and Petite Sirah to name but a few. Fragrant and voluptuous when first released, it will become far more subtle and complex with a year or two of bottle age, although such restraint might be too much to ask of most of us.”
Old Bridge Rating: Ripe, of course, but endlessly interesting - flavours and aromas quite like no other wine you will have tasted.
