Jeb Dunnuck, 96 Points 

"Lastly, the 2016 Orion comes from a single vineyard and is a field blend (the blend isn't specified) from vines planted in 1905. It's a gorgeous effort with a semi-opaque ruby/purple color as well as a smorgasbord-like array of red, blue, and black fruits, toasted spices, candied orange, herbes de Provence, and tobacco. Deep, layered, and full-bodied on the palate, it has remarkable purity of fruit, velvety tannins, a great mid-palate, and one heck of a finish." 

Winemaker Notes: 

"The 2016 Orion is a wine of great character, intensely aromatic, with exceptional depth of color and richness of flavor. It will age better than most of us, or can be drunk with pleasure now, depending in your affection for your heirs." 

About the Producer: 

"Sean Thackrey is one of the most influential and interesting people in the Bay Area food and wine community. Since 1980, he has been producing wines that are extraordinary: not only for quality and complexity, but also because he utilizes unique winemaking techniques, often drawing from historic, sometimes ancient, winemaking practices from all over the world. 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." 

Alcohol: 14.8%
