  • Porter Creek has a few interesting things.  They are right at a bend in the road and have their own Pinot Noir vineyards there, but I haven't loved those.  They make a Carignane from Mendocino fruit that is tasty.  Barely a stone's throw from Casa OT.  We should all pack their minuscule tasting room some time.  Read More

I feel I've tasted the Viognier in Syrah's but probably only because I knew it was there. Looks like Porter Creek is another California Viognier I should try.
