Porter Creek Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Fiona Hill 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Bright on the nose with a bit of a stemmy/floral/dark oily herbal element to the dark, almost curranty fruit. This is a little soft on the palate and broad in the mouth, full of earthy forest floor aspects to the wild red cherry and wild raspberry fruit. Finishing with lift and energy, this picks up a minty aspect to go along with the rich, earthy/clay base. Light and fresh, both easy going and fairly complex. This is delicious. 91 points
