2009 Chardonnay, Platt Vineyard, Sonoma Coast
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Vivid yellow-gold. Explosive perfume of poached pear, peach pit, vanilla and licorice, with notes of orange zest and ginger adding complexity. Sappy, expansive and pure, with juicy, impressively dense pit and orchard fruit flavors staining the palate. Honey and vanilla notes linger on the juicy, penetrating finish.
