    Bright violet color. An intense bouquet displays cherry, red berry preserves, potpourri and pungent herbs. Juicy, focused and spicy, offering tangy cherry and raspberry flavors and a touch of smokiness. A bitter cherry note lingers on the sappy, refreshingly brisk finish, with dusty tannins adding grip. Lots of fruit here, and no jamminess.

    Brambly fruit, yet a very light carignane. Best one they have done from Mendo...Rivals their old vine from Alexander Valley.

The foresight to buy Russian River vineyard land in the late 1970s has obviously paid off for George Davis and his family, who have produced Burgundian and Rhone varieties on their 40-acre estate since the early '80s. Currently farmed organically, Porter Creek is making the transition to biodynamic practices for its 100% hillside, low-yield vineyards in order to even more fully accentuate the individual character of each variety on each site. Winemaker and vineyard manager Alex Davis, heavily informed by French techniques, strives to craft wines of purity and finesse.
