New release of Sean Thackrey's sough-after Orion. Limited.

98 Points Jeb Dunnuck:
"From the same vines planted in 1905, the Sean Thackrey Orion is a bigger, richer wine compared to the 2015 yet offers  similarly awesome notes of black and blue fruits, scorched earth, bay leaf, ground pepper, lavender, and violets. Showing hints of chocolate and mint with time in the glass, this medium to full-bodied, multidimensional effort has no hard edges, incredible depth and intensity, and is just a brilliant, brilliant wine that needs to be tasted to be believed. It needs a decant if drinking any time soon yet will cruise for two decades in cool cellars. This is magical stuff."

From enigmatic producer Sean Thackrey, comes another of his highly-allocated wines, this time a Rhône-style blend.  This bottle is truly sublime.  Like no other wine that we've tasted before.  The fruit gets bigger with each sip, one jammy mouthful after another.  Think Châteauneuf-du-Pape California-style. 

Always quick to sell out, the previous vintage received 95 points from Robert Parker, who wrote: "Marching to the beat of a drummer largely unknown to any other winemaker in California, Sean Thackerey continues to produce some extraordinary wines, in this case from a field blend planted in 1905. This is clearly a Rhône Ranger blend, with a dense ruby/purple color and loads of incense, camphor, blue and black fruits, earth, and spice. Full-bodied, rich, and bursting with personality, the wine is unique/singular, with an intensity that has to be tasted to be believed. Drink it over the next decade or more."
