    "The 2015 Pinot Noir Tina Marie Vineyard is one of the more powerful, dense wines in this range. Bluish shades of fruit, lavender, mint and spice add to the wine's dark, supple personality." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

    Antonio Galloni's Vinous:  "The 2015 Pinot Noir Tina Marie Vineyard is one of the more powerful, dense wines in this range. Many of the 2015s will drink well with minimal cellaring, but the 2015 is a wine that is going to need time to fully come together. Bluish shades of fruit, lavender, mint and spice add to the wine's dark, supple personality. The tannins need time to soften, but there is plenty to look forward to." Mar 2017

    Winery:  "This site lies in the heart of the Green Valley appellation, on the corner of Green Valley and Maddocks Roads. Owner and manager Ron Black had the foresight to plant this hillside very densely to create more vine competition and lower yields. This approach delivers an intoxicating combination of lushness and poise to the wines from this site."

    Trade Notes: "The nose unfolds slowly in the glass, revealing aromas of dark red cherries and raspberries with hints of clove and other spices. Relatively light in weight and somewhat lean in style, with flavorful black cherry fruit caressed by supple tannins, and underlain with tight acidity. Admirable length with welcome freshness and accessibility."
