Grape(s): Pinot Noir
Localization: Sonoma County, California, USA
Tasting Notes: Approachable and lively with red cherry and savory herbs, medium body and a long finish.
The Domain: Sourced from steep estate hillside vineyards that were developed under the watchful care of two generations of the Davis family using organic and biodynamic principles. The winemaking is traditional old world, using hand punch-downs, natural yeast and minimal interventions. Shows elements of wild strawberry and fresh forest floor on the nose and a sensual textural balance on the palette. Unequivocally Russian River Pinot Noir is in its purest form.
Owned and operated by father and son, Porter Creek is a winery and vineyard estate situated just adjacent to Porter Creek (one of the major tributaries to the Russian River on Westside Road) in the most prestigious part of the Russian River Valley appellation.
