From a unique vineyard that covers three overlapping appellations: Russian River Valley, Sonoma Coast and Green Valley the 2018 Tina Marie has 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.
Barnett Vineyards' first harvest was in 1989 and yielded 232 cases of Cabernet. The winery has expanded gradually since then, selecting outstanding vineyard sites for grapes in addition to those grown on the estate, and now produces approximately 8,000 total cases. Rattlesnake and Spring Mountain District wines, including Merlot and Cabernet Franc, remain the focus with total estate production varying between 5,000 and 6,000 cases annually. In addition, we produce limited amounts Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc sourced from single vineyards located in desired appellations.
