  • Pinot noir has become the great alternative. When you don’t want to give another big red wine as a gift it opens up a world of possibilities. Immediately appreciated by name alone, Pinot seems to have developed a certain cachet as the thinking man’s red wine, though there is little evidence to support that. Perhaps it comes from the history that... Read More

  • Porter Creek Carignane Mendocino County Old Vine 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Bitter apple, oil, shale, and juniper show lovely purity, freshness and intensity on the nose, with hints of gamey meats and nuanced, slightly smoky dark berry fruit topped with a hint of tar and lots of wild plum. In the mouth this is a bit rustic with firm but well judged tannins, but the masses of wild plum up front, followed by pure bright a... Read More

  • Porter Creek Syrah Russian River Valley Timbervine Ranch 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This comes on strongly, with peach, honeysuckle and jasmine aromas on the nose that are joined by alluringly briny green Sicilian olive notes along with layered hickory smoke, green peppercorn, clove and savory grilled beef aromas, with the floral notes eventually turning more toward the violet end of the spectrum. On entry this is a bit tannic ... Read More

  • Porter Creek Zinfandel Russian River Valley 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Classic bramble berry, the 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 to 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 b... Read More

  • Porter Creek Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Hillside Vineyard 2010

    Snoothrank:

    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. Theres 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-pa... Read More

  • Porter Creek Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Fiona Hill 2010

    Snoothrank:

    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, eart... Read More

  • Porter Creek Viognier Russian River Valley Timbervine Ranch 2011

    Snoothrank:

    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... Read More

  • Porter Creek Chardonnay Russian River Valley 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Theres a lightly sweet fruity top note to the Asian pear fruit on the nose, which picks up lovely spice nuances with air. On the palate this is clear and tense, full of green apples with a hint of fig at the core, all framed with textural touches of green plum and lemon curd on the back end that leads to a clean, apple peel finish full of lovely...

  • I am a new wine lover. A year or two ago I was having troubles staying away from 'the sauce'.  It wasn't alcoholism, per se, but it was getting to the point where I was spending much of my money and getting very little done. So, being that I am working in a fine dining restaurant, Carnevor Steakhouse in Milwaukee, WI, I decided to begin studying... Read More
