93pointsThorne 2007 Rio Vista Vineyard Pinot Noir (Sta. Rita Hills)

Made in an exceptionally ripe manner, this Pinot brims with cherry and raspberry pie filling fruit that's so rich, it's almost like a dessert, except the finish is dry. Oak adds delicious complications of sweet, caramelized vanilla and char. This is quite a good wine, but it's a little on the young side. Give it 2–3 years to begin to come around.
