2015 Porter Creek "Old Vine" Mendocino County Carignane

SKU #1370713 92 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark Alex Davis makes excellent Carignane and his 2015 Old Vine bottling is no exception, with the wine coming in at a very civilized 13.3 percent octane and offering up a refined bouquet of black cherries, sweet dark berries, hung game, a hint of pepper, dark soil tones, a touch of tree bark and a topnote of vinesmoke. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and more robust in personality than the very sophisticated nose suggests. There is excellent depth at the core, fine focus and balance, chewy, well-integrated tannins and a long, nascently complex and nicely peppery finish. Fine juice that could do with at least a few years in the cellar to allow those backend tannins to soften up a bit more. Drink between 2022-2050. Inner quote mark (8/2018)
