(search item no. 94663)

PRICE ON 9/21/2014: $19.99

Winemaker's Notes:

The object of Pleiades Old Vines is to be delicious, delight the jaded, and go well with anything red wine goes well with. Includes Syrah, Barbera, Petite Sirah, Carignane, Sangiovese, Zinfandel, and Merlot, to name but a few. Earthy and fragrant when first released, it will become far more subtle and complex with a bit of age. It will throw a natural sediment, and should never served directly from a bottle stored upside-down.

About Sean Thackrey:

Sean Thackrey is one of the most influential people in the Bay Area Food & Wine community, and has been for nearly three decades. Along with luminaries like Alice Waters and Kermit Lynch, Sean Thackrey is deeply linked to the shaping of food & wine as we know it, and to this day represents many of the best and most ground-breaking practices in our industry.

Since 1980, Sean has been producing wines that are extraordinary not only for great quality and complexity, but also because Sean utilizes unique wine-making techniques, often drawing from historic, sometimes ancient, wine-making practices from all over the world. The results are consistent, as evidenced by Sean’s continued support and enthusiasm from his peers and devoted customers.

Sean sources grapes from many locations throughout California, and makes all his wines by hand–”touching every grape”–at his small Bolinas winery. Self-taught, and fully reliant on his intuition and senses, Sean is the antithesis of corporate wine-making. The proof is in the bottle.
