"It's like a chef's special. You trust the chef so you're prepared to order the dish of the day…The object of Pleiades Old Vines is to be delicious, delight the jaded, and irritate the Wine Police.”  - Sean Thackery

The Man. The Myth. The Legend. Sean Thackrey. The all-time great philosopher king of California winemakers! If you’ve never experienced a Thackery wine, have you ever lived?!?! PLEIADES OLD VINES! 30% OFF! Sean was...basically...the antithesis of corporate wine-making. A bohemian, an artist, a poet – a Bacchus incarnate who lived among us for but a while. What might be in this blend? Syrah, sangiovese, mourvedre, barbera, carignane, petite sirah, viognier – it's a different and unknown blend every year. The only pursuit Sean ever pursued in winemaking was pleasure. No blending constraints, no tried and true methodology...pleasure. And boy, does this DELIVER!

This new release of Pleiades XXIX Old Vines (the 29th, if your Roman is lacking) is perhaps the most approachable, delicious, impossible-to-stop-sipping release yet! Crunchy-bright red fruits, rhubarb, raspberry, kirsch, licorice, red flowers, even a Chateauneuf-du-Pape-like note of sweet fennel...fresh and balanced and terrifyingly easy to sip with bohemian ease!! SO STOKED to have this in da house! While it lasts!

** Sean passed away in May at 79. Bolinas, California winemaking, and the world of wine will never be the same. So join us and raise a glass, talk about nothing with a stranger, and look to the stars! **
