The 2018 Pinot Noir Platt Vineyard comes from a site on the Sonoma Coast and saw 15-20% stems, which make an appearance on the nose, with lots of stem and forest notes balanced by terrific spice, redcurrant, and blackberry fruits. Medium to full-bodied and beautifully textured, with both elegance and richness, drink this classic Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir over the coming decade.
A serenely beguiling Pinot Noir, this conjures the essence of Platt Vineyard; a superlative, ocean-breezed slope on the cool Pacific Coast. Initial impressions suggest a youthful restraint; then it quickly reveals aromas of Bing cherry, plum blossom, chanterelle mushrooms, underbrush and rose hip tea. The enticing savory character shows pomegranate, mulberry, kirsch along with a soupçon of tamarind and freshly tilled soil. The significant dry extract gives the calm temperament new murmurs of lingering complexity.
