PinotFile 95 Points- Moderate garnet color in the glass. Intoxicating aromas of Bing cherry, baking spice and red rose petal. A delicious infusion of dark cherry goodness with a hint of cola greets the palate. Impeccable harmony with very fine-grain tannins and a welcome nerve of acidity. Mid-weight in richness, endlessly gentle, with a refreshing finish that leaves you wanting more. The wine holds up beautifully over time in the glass predicting ageworthiness. Porter Creek is one of the most under-theradar producers of ultrapremium Pinot Noir in California.
Porter Creek helped put Russian River Valley on the map and continues to be one of the top producers of the region. George Davis first planted Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in their Westside Road vineyard in 1977, long before it was fashionable. Expressive and pretty Pinot Noir with red fruit notes and moderate oak. The wine aged for 11 months in 228L French oak (25% new).
