An absolute wonder from the Saint Helena region of Napa Valley in Northern California. This is a Red Blend varietal Syrah from the Thackrey & Company winery. It contains a full body, very mineral taste with a hint of blackberry and graphite in the aroma. It is a 14.4% alcohol by volume beverage with a ripe and juicy flavor.
This Red blend holds a vibrant red cherry, licorice and plum flavor with a hint of bay leaves. It has a complex taste with a spiciness to accompany. Tannins are firm and robust.
The Thackrey Orion Red pairs very well with beef, veal, poultry and lamb. Ultimately it was produced from Shiraz/Syrah grapes. When it was produced in the year 2000, June saw moderately cool temperatures with September seeing high heat and October experiencing cooler climate and rain.
The wine is big, bold and black and contains a very prominent eucalyptus aroma. This red blend ha sa very long finish and is truly one of the best that Sean Thackrey has provided. The wine received a 95 point rating from world-renowned wine critic Robert Parker.
