Anthill Farms is a project that you might say was born in the cellars of the great Williams Selyem winery in Sonoma. The three partners in Anthill Farms Anthony Filiberti, Dave Low, and Webster Marquez met while working at Williams Selyem in 2003. They have also honed their Pinot chops at Bergstrom in Oregon (Filiberti), Papapietro Perry Winery (Low) and C. Donatiello (Marquez).

Bright ruby-red. Floral- and spice-accented aromas of candied red fruits, with deeper sassafras and licorice nuances coming up with air.

Turns spicier with air and finishes with sneaky fine-grained tannins and a lingering floral note. - Josh ReynoldsSee detailed press review

Antonio Galloni, February 2014
One of the more precise, chiseled wines in the range, the 2012 Pinot Noir Tina Marie stands out for its nuance and the delineation of its flavors. Dark red cherry, plum, licorice, cloves and crushed rocks meld together in a vibrant, tense Pinot loaded with class and complexity. This is a great example of the house style, and also one of the more distinctly savory wines in the lineup. As is the norm here, the Tina Marie was not racked during aging and was bottled unfined and unfiltered. Today, the color is a bit cloudy, which is not a reflection of quality, just one of the wine's attributes. It is possible that with bottle age the cloudiness will dissipate a bit, but I don't expect it will fully disappear.See detailed press review
