International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92Bright red. High-pitched aromas of fresh red berries, blood orange and minerals, with a touch of cola adding depth. Sweet and seamless on the palate, offering juicy raspberry and cherry flavors that put on weight with air. Shows very good breadth and velvety texture, finishing with excellent clarity, gentle tannins and a lingering red fruit preserve quality. Alex Davis called this wine his |mission statement: the kind of wine I'd make and drink every day, if I could.|Author: Josh RaynoldsIssue: May/June 2014
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.
