Winemaker's Notes Combining the lush fruit of our warmer estate vineyards with the rustic elegance of grapes from the cooler “deep end” of the valley, this wine offers a beautifully complete expression of Anderson Valley Pinot Noir. On the palate, lively flavors of wild strawberry and cherry are in perfect harmony, with terroir-driven hints of saddle leather, anise, pennyroyal and wild mushrooms, as well as notes of confectionary spices and vanilla from aging in the finest French oak.
Critical Acclaim Vintage 2016 - Wilfred Wong - 92 points COMMENTARY: When I look for top quality and dependable Pinot Noirs, Goldeneye has been one of my best choices over the years. The 2016 vintage is solid and well-built. TASTING NOTES: This wine is pert, well-structured, and frisky. Its aromas and flavors of dried earth, black fruit, berries, and savory spices should pair it well with a spit-roasted leg of lamb. (Tasted: December 12, 2018, San Francisco, CA)
