Wine Review: This dark red colored Pinot Noir from the Platt Vineyard is Excellent! It opens with a heavenly blueberry, oak and cola bouquet with a hint of pencil shavings. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, well-balanced, smooth and soft. The flavor profile is a very tasty plum and cedar blend with notes of boysenberry. We also detected a hint of thyme. The finish is dry and its refined moderate tannins stick around for a while. We suggest pairing this beauty with a roasted quail with Pinot Noir sauce. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2016 Flanagan Pinot Noir Platt Vineyard is a compelling expression of what is widely acknowledged to be one of the greatest sites in California. The wine has a brilliant color and the fruit character, despite the very cool site, is explosive. The nose offers a rich bouquet of ripe cranberry, cola, and a hint of spice. The palate shows very clean dark red fruit with a silky, persistent finish. Incredible acidity, a beautiful mouthfeel, and an incredible purity of fruit character make this a reference point wine.
