The 2018 Tina Marie is lighter in color with more of a deep ruby core vs dark purple, with very pronounced aromatics. Fresh blueberries, light plum, cherry blossom as well as cinnamon stick and white pepper are all
prominent on the nose. The wine is soft and silky with more pomegranate and gravel minerality on the palate. The tannins are soft and elegant, with very balanced acidity. The finish is long and of bright cherry. This is a beautiful wine that can be enjoyed in its youth but would benefit from 5-6 years in the cellar (2024-2025). Aged 10 months in French Oak Barrels 50% new.
