2016 Porter Creek "Fiona Hill Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1427242 92 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark I do not know how many winegrowers in Sonoma are farming biodynamically these days, but Alex Davis has been doing so for several years now and the wines seem to really speak more eloquently of their underlying terroir as a result. The 2016 Fiona Hill bottling of pinot noir is a first class follow-up to the superb 2015 version, coming in at a similar octane to last year’s bottling and delivering a fine aromatic constellation of cherries, pomegranate, a hint of mustard seed, lovely and quite complex soil tones, gamebird, a touch of woodsmoke, incipient spice elements and cedary oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full and nicely structured for the long haul, with a fine core of fruit, excellent soil signature, ripe, fine-grained tannins and a long, youthful and very promising finish. This is still a puppy and needs five to eight years in the cellar to start to really blossom, but it is going to be a superb bottle in the fullness of time. (Drink between 2024-2065) 92+ points Inner quote mark (8/2019)
