Porter Creek Viognier Russian River Valley Timbervine Ranch 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A little earthy on the nose, with lovely floral, almost rose petal, aromas topped with lychee and pineapple. In the mouth, this is a little sweetly fruited up front, but with attractive freshness to the apricot fruit that shows some some golden raspberry character in a very clean and bright style. This shows lovely energy in the mouth, with late-arriving honeysuckle perfumes and a lovely bright orange-tinged finish that is impressively long. About as good a new world Viognier as I’ve had. 93 points
