90 points "The idiosyncratic Sean Thackrey (a helluva winemaker regardless of vineyard sources or varietals) has changed his label (which I do not like as much as the original), but he is still turning out high class, nuanced, complex, singular wines. The dense ruby/purple-tinged 2002 Sirius Petite Sirah Eagle Point Ranch displays licorice, acacia flower, and black fruit aromas, medium to full body, excellent purity, and firm tannin. While not complex, it reveals plenty of depth as well as richness. Give it another 1-2 years in the bottle before drinking. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2014." Best 2007-2014
