RATINGS

93-95The Wine Advocate

Stands out for its statuesque personality. A firm, structured wine... Tobacco, dark red cherries, mint and licorice are some of the notes that appear on the finish. This is another dazzling wine full of promise.

93Vinous / IWC

Darker shades of red fruit with purplish overtones emerge from the 2011 Pinot Noir Platt Vineyard. Wonderfully chiseled and nuanced in the glass.... Sweet floral and savory notes are woven into the resonant, expressive finish.

REGION

United States, California, Sonoma, Sonoma Coast

Sonoma Coast AVA runs from San Pablo Bay in the south to Mendocino County in the north. It includes 7,000 vineyard acres and earned AVA status in 1987. Its proximity to the Pacific Ocean means it gets double the rainfall of nearby inland appellations and the ocean gives the appellation a relatively cool climate. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir can thrive in these conditions, and there are numerous producers making critically acclaimed Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
