Bolinas-based Sean Thackrey has made a Petite Sirah from the Eaglepoint Ranch since 1997, and are we glad he has! This is a wine to put away in your cellar (or closet) for however long you can stand it! When you do get around to opening it, watch it explode from the glass and change over the hour or two it takes for you two drink the bottle, offering such an array of aromas and flavors it is impossible to catalog them here. Robert Parker has given a past vintage of this wine 96 points and this review: "Petite Sirah lovers are in for a treat! The 2001 Sirius (100% Petite Sirah from Mendocino County's Eaglepoint Ranch) is a wine of legendary proportions. Huge, uplifted aromatics of graphite, blackberries, blueberries, acacia flowers, and crushed rocks are followed by a wine of classic proportions. A well-delineated, brilliantly concentrated, super-pure offering, it reveals floral notes intermixed with copious amounts of black fruits, this terrific, incredibly young red requires 2-4 years of cellaring. Watch it unfold over the next two decades."
