2022 Pinot Noir, Tina Marie Vineyards, Green Valley of Russian River
The 2022 Tina Marie Pinot Noir is a beautiful medium ruby color. The nose is very bright and fragrant filled with pomegranate, cherry blossoms, white pepper and fresh truffles. Slight dusty cocoa and an edge of cinnamon spice also make up the aromatics. Due to a five-day cold soak there is a beautiful viscosity to the wine. The palate is full of red berry fruit, raspberries and strawberry jam which is balanced with a nice gravel minerality. This vintage has a bit more grip as far as the tannins are concerned, however the fresh acid from this cool sub-appellation keeps them in check. There is a long fresh cherry finish. This pretty wine will age nicely over the next 5-6 years (2028-2029).
