The 2015 Pinot Noir Platt Vineyard is pliant, supple and beautifully perfumed, with all of the allure it showed from barrel. Plush and dense on the palate, the 2015 is arrestingly beautiful today. The big, potent tannins are nearly buried by the sheer resonance of the fruit. This is an especially dense, virile expression of Platt. I imagine it will develop beautifully in bottle fore many years to come. Littorai's 2015 captures all the pedigree that has made Platt one of the most highly regarded sites on the Sonoma Coast.

Nice subtle fruit. Amazingly delivers a huge expression of flavor, tannin and acid while remaining light on its feet.

The most generous flavor profile, with licorice and spices atop the black fruits. But finely textured

Heading to an #oldworld style with some characteristics of good quality #burgundy Med + intensity on the nose with sweet red and black fruit. Great complexity on the nose as well as the palate with delicious spice and mineral notes. The structure was firm but refined and higher alcohol was felt. The length was good. #littorai #sonomacoast #pinotnoir #california #newworld #ctbucklinwine

Intense, smoky, earthy, and spicy, with raspberries and blackberries. Ageworthy, but drunk now.
