Cellar/Tasting Notes
The Platt Vineyards Chardonnay, produced in classic Burdundian style, ripens two to three weeks later than the Russian River Chardonnays, with a lower pH, and the crisp acidity and minerality from this cool site are quite apparent in the wine. The vine selection is from both Old Wente and Long Vineyards which both add their own uniqueness to the wine. The Wente adds a classic burgundian structure as well as some minerality and spice. The Long Vineyards adds floral notes.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 92+
"I was also impressed by the 2011 Chardonnay Platt Vineyard. Cropped at one ton of fruit per acre (Ramey told me the grapes looked like petits pois from France), and from one of the coldest sites in his portfolio, it exhibits lively notes of lemon oil, lime skins, white peaches and a touch of honey. This fresh, medium-bodied, concentrated 2011 should drink well for 4-5 years."
Antonio Galloni- Vinous (AG): 93+
"The 2011 Chardonnay Platt Vineyard is direct and focused in style. Butter, pastry, citrus and sweet spices are some of the nuances that are alive in the glass. Because of its proximity to the Pacific and the cool vintage, the Platt is a bit compact and tightly wound at this stage....Wild flowers, almonds and mint are layered into the finish. There is a lot to look forward to here."
