Notes of ripe apple and honeydew melon greet and are delicately perfumed by notes of freesia and citrus blossom. Brighter notes of lime and Meyer lemon match the refreshing acidity of this wine, balanced by a creamy palate and leading to a finish that will continue to lengthen in the coming months. A wonderfully textured and vibrant Chardonnay displaying the best Carneros has to offer.
A layered nose of brioche, citrus blossom, oyster shell, and quince come together in a bright and inviting introduction. The palate is focused with bright acidity and medium to full bodied, showing plenty of length and notes of crushed rock, brioche, Bartlett pear and lemon curd along the way.
The 2015 Vintage started with a cool spring that limited crop yields severely...especially in the Sonoma Coast. The lower crop yields produced an intense vintage with riper fruit profiles. Platt 2015 yields were 53 tons for the 31.3 acres of vines or about 1.8 tons per acre.

The 2017 Herson Family Vineyards Influence Chardonnay is balanced, complex, distinctive, and is connected to its Carneros terroir.

It was crafted by one of Napa Valley’s iconic winemakers who puts his trust in his craft, his instinct and his pallet when producing wines that are among Napa Valley’s finest.
“Vibrant and racy aromas of pineapple and other tropical fruits laced with citrus peel and a hint of wet stone. A beautiful and rich mouthfeel with notes of orange blossom and nectarine all framed by lip smacking acidity. A Chardonnay to enjoy now but worthy of several years in the cellar.”
