WSI94+ Less than three miles from the Pacific Ocean Pinot Noir from the Platt Vineyard tends to be more Burgundian in character than almost any other site in California.
Spring jumps from the glass, giving you a mix of wild berries: mulberry, cranberry and strawberry married with blood orange as you bend your nose in for your first inhalation. The wine begins to open up as it breathes to show notes of rose petal, tarragon, fresh oregano, eventually giving way to undertones of fresh leather and flint. All of this can be found on the palate in abundance, and every sip has us noticing something new. It’s a wine that’s immensely enjoyable on its own but makes you dream of all the fun things you can cook along side it. 100% PInot Noir (clones 828, 777, and Calera) Harvested and sorted by hand October 13 Crushed into open top fermenters, 25% stem inclusion.
