Notes on the Thorne Rio Vista Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills 2005 : NVWE NOTES: Rich in fruit, smoky and herbal-accented, the nose of this fine "debut" bottling offers dark plum, boysenberry, ripe cherry, roasted grain, bouillon, peppered beef and some red currant and orange zest hints in a richly-layered, but youthful mix. It is darker still and more mineral-edged on the palate, where toast, smoke, grain, tobacconist ship spice and hints of pepper sit toe to toe with the ripe cherry and plum fruit. This is a gutsy Pinot Noir and it deserves service with a rich roast or flavorful stew. It should improve for another two years or more. 425 cases produced.THORNE RIO VISTA PINOT NOIR SANTA RITA HILLS 2005
