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. This is another strong set of wines from Anthill Farms. Low yields are the theme of the 2015 vintage here, as they are pretty much everywhere. Pinot Noir was hit the hardest. Yields were down in Syrah as well, but not as dramatically as in Pinot because weather during the Syrah flowering was more stable. The Anthill wines all see a good bit of whole clusters in fermentation (30-50%) and are handled minimally in the cellar. Because of that, the wines can sometimes be a bit cloudy in the bottle. These wines are gorgeous expressions of some of the top vineyard sites in Sonoma and Mendocino Counties. (AG)
