Sean Thackrey ‘Pleiades XVIII Old Vines’

CALIFORNIA | $24

Bursting with boysenberry, blackberry and cherry fruit. An odd stockpot of Sangiovese, Mourvedre, Vigonier, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon “to name a few,” it’s said. It all works for an enjoyable and accessible fruit forward sip with a tart fruit finish. Age or aggressive decanting will help smooth the sharp peaks. An eccentric one, both mysterious and charming — enjoyable company, though perhaps not frequently. A good wine. (Reviewed 10/30/10)
