Porter Creek Zinfandel Russian River Valley 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Classic bramble berry, Zinfandel nose is bright and perfumed, with just a kiss of oak lending a smoky edge to the powerful nose. Marionberry and boysenberry pop on the entry of this surprisingly medium light bodied wine that shows full-on bright acids on the palate. This has a lovely texture, a little chewy with deep fruit, and terrific balance that leads to a bright clean finish with hint of jammy Lingonberry fruit, and lingering dusty tannins. This asks to be guzzled. 92 points

Explosive, bright jammy nose of cherries and red berry jam and a rich and textured palate. Nice harmony on the palate, everything in equal parts. Very harmonious wine! - Tasted at winery 4/21/10

Like their 2004 this is a big, yet feminine zin that is dominated by fruit and spice. Full-bodied, yet very balanced and sleek.

big, beautiful almost buttery nose -- and spicier than your typical zin. A little harsh on the finish (a touch to much acidity and somewhat hot). Nice raspberry and strawberry overtones.

Rich berries on the nose. This is a full-bodied, spicy zin that hangs on the tongue. Smoother if you let it breathe.

A classic Sonoma Zinfandel - jammy, rich, and opulent. A Zin lover\'s dream.
