The Thorne family planted their first 26 acres of grapes in the year 2000. At that time, there already existed an understanding amongst the wine cognoscenti that Sta.

Soon, this young vineyard-designate was coveted amongst winemakers determined to illuminate the virtues of Pinot Noir, among them: Brewer-Clifton, Tantara, Hartley-Ostini Hitching Post, Drew, Ken Brown Wines, and Flying Goat Cellars to name a few. – Description from Nerevar

    I did not like this much, although it does have a 92 WA rating. First of all, it had a nose of sour cherries, petroleum, and reminded me of the cheap in-flight tiny bottles of wine.
