Porter Creek Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Hillside Vineyard 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Complex on the nose and downright Burgundian, with burnished wild cherry, mineral, gorgeous raspberry fruit, and a touch of old wood, all topped with nuanced smoke notes. There’s nice concentration to the bright red cherry fruit here and it all remains tense on the palate, with fine acidity and a wonderful base of fine-grained tannins. The mid-palate shows off precise mineral cut and leads to a finish full of wild cherry preserves with tons of balancing acid and real finesse. This is a pretty brilliant wine. 93 points

A thoroughly enjoyable Russian River Pinot Noir that is well balanced and plenty of character.The medium garnet colour fades to brick on the rim with a pronounced nose of smoky, earthy characters and ripe brambly berries, spices and underlying gaminess. The palate was rich and mouth filling with blackberries, liquorice and spices balanced by fine grain tannins and good acidity.
