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. Fresh cranberry, clove and a potpourri-like perfume define the nose. Spend time enjoying the ethereal nose before you indulge, you will not regret it. Once you take the plunge, the wine is shy and introverted, but alluring. Notes of mulberry, red plum, sweet black licorice, sandalwood, Chinese Five Spice powder and white pepper are displayed with discretion and grace, while the wine has a kind of wild quality to it. This wine will benefit with 1+ hour of breathing or decanting.
