No surprise this possesses more than a passing resemblance to Thieriot. Sea spray and crushed oyster shell always remind us of the most far flung Sonoma Coast sites, almost as if the fog that wraps itself around this area carries ocean mist to the grapes. The naturally low pH pushes the fruit to high-toned: lemon peel, nectarine and orchard fruits. There's also a savory quality that adds complexity and depth, tea leaves and mint accentuated by salted butter. Coiled tight for now, all the potential resides in the mid-palate where the acidity provides a cool freshness that's both mouthwatering and luscious.

The 2018 Chardonnay Platt Vineyard is another salty, mineral-laced, racy Chardonnay. Notes of apple blossom, lemon curd, crushed stone, and toasted bread all flow to a medium-bodied effort that has bright yet integrated acidity, rock-solid mid-palate depth, and a great finish. It might be my favorite in the lineup.

In 2018, the Chardonnay Platt Vineyard is fabulous. Rich and luscious, the 2018 shows why this site is so highly regarded. The Platt is a wonderfully complete wine endowed with striking aromatic presence, tons of depth and plenty of supporting structure. Apricot, sage, mint and tropical notes all open up in the glass. Today, the Platt feels a bit phenolic and tight. Then again, it was just bottled a month ago.
