    September 3, 2015 - This still has life to it. Subtle nose of dark berry fruit and a liveliness that hint of red fruit. Palate is where its at...resolved and integrated tannins with a nice spice and tartness to it. You might mistake this for an aged N Rhone. 15.3 abv

    February 2, 2013 - Wonderful wine, although nearing the end of its useful shelf life as it were. Surprisingly fruit forward; nose better than on the palate

    May 13, 2012 - Wonderful Zin...sadly my last Porter Creek. Excellent with a sausage-based lasagne..smooth and lush.

    December 6, 2011 - Earthy, with a bit of barny funk and a surprisingly grapey aroma at first, along with more oaky heat than i like. Better the second day.

    April 22, 2011 - Nose: Ripe, ripe blackberry, black cherry, mixed spices, and alcohol. Palate: Similar flavors. Nice concentration, balance, and mouthfeel. Fruit forward (not overly so), easy drinking zinfandel.
